      How to design assessments for emerging bilingual students. Research Brief 34 How can students’ everyday experiences support science learning through engineering design? Practice Brief 40 Addressing controversial science topics in the K classroom. Practice Brief   However, the type of assessment that is conducted, as well as the type of data that is collected, can often look different depending on the grade level. This post explores three ideas for how formative assessments can be used in the elementary classroom, and how technology can be used to support these types of assessments.

      Designing Classroom Assessments Chapter 3 presented a process for scoring assessments that is very different from the traditional point system. Within that new system, response patterns for students are used to determine each student's score on a scale that represents expected growth milestones for a measurement topic. Spark your students' curiosity with our second grade science worksheets and printables! From explorations of plant and animal life cycles all the way to weather patterns, layers of the Earth, and the planets of our solar system, these second grade science worksheets use fascinating facts and engaging illustrations to bring science to life for your students.
