Using Learning Progression Frameworks and Assessments to Guide Research and Professional Development

Summary

We have three goals in this session: 1) we explore the development and use of learning progression frameworks and assessments focused on environmental science literacy, with strands focusing on carbon cycling, evolution and biodiversity, and water systems and cycles, and 2) we discuss how we have used learning progression research to formulate goals for student learning, develop teaching materials, and guide professional development, and 3) we discuss the challenges of organizing a large, geographically dispersed project around a new approach to educational research and assessment.
