Science Sampler: Finding learning beneath the surface—Monitoring student progress with Science Practice Learning Progressions

Science Scope—October 2010

If we want our students to become capable practitioners of scientific inquiry, we should not stop at providing opportunities to do inquiry. We need to be intentional about assessing and teaching the competencies necessary for inquiry. However, the ability to conduct scientific inquiry can be difficult to assess. Therefore, the author created The Science Practice Learning Progressions, a monitoring tool that lends itself to tracking progress over time. Here you will discover how to incorporate this effective assessment tool into your science curriculum.
