Science Task Screener

The Science Task Screener is used to take a deeper dive into evaluating science assessment tasks. The purpose of the Science Task Screener is

  1. to determine whether classroom assessment tasks are high quality, designed to elicit evidence of three-dimensional performances, and designed to support the purpose for which they will be used; and
  2. to provide a group of reviewers with a common set of features to ground conversations about what it “looks like” for students to demonstrate the kinds of performances expected by three-dimensional standards.

The Screener builds off the criteria in Category III of the EQuIP Rubric for Science by more clearly specifying features for the assessment tasks embedded in lessons and units.
