This document contains a set of model competency-based education (CBE) assessments that provide three types of assessment for students in grades 1-8 in science. Types of assessment include: traditional: multiple choice, short-answer, and open-ended items; performance-like: more authentic forms that involve students outside of the classroom; and open-ended: more substantive performance assessments requiring out-of-class preparation and holistic scoring procedures. The design of model assessment instruments is discussed, including: balanced assessments; test development; materials and conditions for development; relationship to proficiency tests; and student evaluation. A content summary chart accompanies each grade-level instrument. Item discussions accompany all grade-level CBE assessments. Item descriptions provide an overview of items and pertinent content. A rubric summary further organizes these elements in a quick reference table reflective of suggested stages of an acceptable student response. (DDR)
