Carefully designed assessments can give teachers the information they need to improve instruction and help students meet educational goals and objectives. This updated resource offers a multifaceted approach to measure what students know and can do as a result of their learning experiences.

Assessing Student Understanding in Science provides educators with essential methods to best assess student proficiency and performance in six domains of science. The authors provide an extensive collection of strategies and examples for elementary, middle, and high school classrooms. Aligned with national science standards, the book includes:

  • Criteria to measure student progress in six critical domains of science—concepts, processes, applications, attitude, creativity, and the nature of science
  • Strategies to evaluate your teaching practice, such as action research, video recordings, and journaling
  • Information about using formative assessments to inform teaching
  • Methods for assessing student work using portfolios, self-evaluations, and rubrics
  • An introduction to using science notebooks as assessment tools

With the proven frameworks in this book, teachers can build customized assessments to meet instructional needs and prepare students to succeed in science.
