Focus on frequent, accurate feedback with this newly expanded guide to understanding assessment. Field-tested and classroom ready, it's designed to help you reinforce productive learning habits while gauging your lessons' effectiveness. The book opens with an up-to-date discussion of assessment theory, research, and uses. Then comes a wealth of sample assessment activities (nearly 50 in all, including 15 new ones) in biology, chemistry, physics, and Earth science. You'll like the activities' flexibility. Some are short tasks that zero in on a few specific process skills; others are investigations involving a variety of skills you can cover in one or two class periods; and still others are extended, in-depth investigations that take several weeks to complete. Keyed to the U.S. National Science Education Standards, the activities include reproducible task sheets and scoring rubrics. All are ideal for helping your students reflect on their own learning during science labs.Rodney L. Doran. Dichotomous Key Task Information Background: Biologists estimate that there are as many as 40 million different species of organisms on Earth. Even though there is variation among species, there also are many similarities.
