This pack contains three standard-based assessments. Each assessment matches one of the Science Inquiry and Application Standards for Ohio (see below). The assessment questions are varied (multiple choice, short answer, diagrams, tables, matching, venn diagram, etc.) to create a rigorous assessment experience that will show you what students really know and prepare them for the big end of year test!
During the years of grades 5-8, all students must use the following scientific processes, with appropriate laboratory safety techniques, to construct their knowledge and understanding in all science content areas:
Identify questions that can be answered through scientific investigations;
Design and conduct a scientific investigation;
Use appropriate mathematics, tools and techniques to gather data and information;
Analyze and interpret data;
Develop descriptions, models, explanations and predictions;
Think critically and logically to connect evidence and explanations;
Recognize and analyze alternative explanations and predictions; and
Communicate scientific procedures and explanations.
