EQuIP Rubric for Lessons & Units: Science

The Educators Evaluating the Quality of Instructional Products (EQuIP) Rubric for science provides criteria by which to measure the degree to which lessons and units are designed for the NGSS.

The purpose of the rubric and review process is to: (1) review existing lessons and units to determine what revisions are needed; (2) provide constructive criterion-based feedback and suggestions for improvement to developers; (3) identify exemplars/models for teachers’ use within and across states; and (4) to inform the development of new lessons, units, and other instructional materials.

NGSS Lesson Screener:
The NGSS Lesson Screener includes fewer criteria than the EQuIP Rubric for Science and is intended to more quickly review a learning sequence to see if it is on the right track. It is intended to be used in more informal reviews (no scoring) and is only for evaluating instruction that extends over several class periods or days. It is not designed for thorough vetting of lessons or for evaluating units or longer sequences of instruction.
