Certica announced the availability of the NextGen Science Checks™ designed to assess mastery of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The NextGen Science Checks have been developed in accordance with the Achieve guidelines for NGSS assessment, so that teachers can evaluate students who are exposed to new methods of science learning.
Rarely do standards creators include tools for implementation. There are few how-to guides for using standards optimally or plugging standards into a district’s operating procedures. Grappling with a way to consume or comply with standards, many district administrators simply hit the “print” button.
Next Generation Science Standards shift science education away from traditional classroom activities
heavily focused around fact memorization, lecture, siloed “subjects” and simplified cookie-cutter lab activities that don’t inspire our students or prepare them for a STEM-dominated economy.
