Developing Instructionally-Embedded Performance Assessments for the NGSS Classroom

This course is designed for participants who have already taken SNAP Course 1 (Performance Assessment in the NGSS Classroom) or who have extensive experience using the NGSS Appendices E, F,and G and with analyzing the dimensions of a performance assessment. In order to receive a Statement of Accomplishment at the end of this course, you must complete all of the reflections and assignments (the required tasks are indicated on the course outline and they can be identified by having a note about the possible number of points associated with them). There are also questions embedded throughout the course that are prompts for your group to discuss and in those cases one team member can enter a response for the whole group.


Participants will have opportunities at two crucial points during the course to engage in a peer feedback process with another development team.

Topics Include

Procedures for defining performance outcomes, selecting phenomena, and developing a task to meet a set of criteria for high-quality assessment.
