Seamless Assessment in Science: A Guide for Elementary & Middle School. Grades: K - 8
National Science Teachers Association (NJ3)
When a classroom is opened to inquiry-based learning, teachers can no longer rely solely on traditional end-of-unit tests. "Seamless Assessment" is a one-stop guide to strategies that mirror the investigatory spirit. Working with the popular 5E model as an instructional framework, the authors have designed methods for embedding formative and summative assessment in any science unit. Thirteen vignettes by practicing teachers show how to make assessment not just a test but an opportunity for students to share what they learn in the life, physical, and Earth sciences.
