Explore the New Vision for NYSSLS Science Assessments Gr 6-12 **IN PERSON** presented by Glen Cochrane – 8:30-2:30pm

November 17, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

Assessment thinking has expanded to a System of Assessment. Methods are used that inform both teachers and students so that instructional strategies can be formulated that support student learning. We will review the standard format for performance-based tasks and use assessment screeners to evaluate summative assessment examples. The difference between assessments aligned with the three-dimensional pedagogy of the New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) and traditional assessments will be considered. Small teams of participants will have an opportunity to construct 3D classroom performance tasks aligning to the standards. Included will be: -Future format of the new NYSSLS based Regents. -Components of a system of assessments. -Principles of Evidence-based Assessment. -Role of NGSS Evidence Statements. -Using Item Specifications to support writing assessments. -Performance Level Descriptions (PLDs) for instruction and assessment -Format for 3D assessment tasks -Evaluating assessments using task screeners
