Assessments, understood as tools for tracking what and how well students have learned, play a critical role in the classroom.Developing Assessments for the Next Generation Science Standardsdevelops an approach to science assessment to meet the vision of science education for the future as it has been elaborated in A Framework for K-12 Science Education (Framework) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). These documents are brand new and the changes they call for are barely under way, but the new assessments will be needed as soon as states and districts begin the process of implementing the NGSS and changing their approach to science.
