Evaluating Professional Development: A New Tool for Assessing Impacts on Teacher Knowledge for Science Teaching

Description

This session described ATLAST's approach to developing assessments of knowledge for science teaching. Participants became familiar with three different types of assessment items and had an opportunity to examine assessments for science teachers in three content areas - force and motion, plate tectonics, and flow of matter and energy in living systems. The session provided time for participants to talk with each other and the presenter about different approaches to assessing knowledge for science teaching.
