After publishing the second blog on engineer engaging learning and assessment content, I promised I would publish a blog illustrating the use of content features to motivate student engagement. In the blog today, I fulfill that promise by presenting two versions of the same NGSS-aligned, phenomenon-driven science task. The first version lacks most of the features of assessment tasks that inspire engagement and, sadly, looks like most assessment tasks. The second version is packed with just those features I discussed in the earlier blog demonstrating how to engineer engaging learning and assessment content.
This is the second part of a two-part blog series on engaging learning and assessment content. In part one, I explained why engaging learning and assessment content is important for the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), the NAEP Technology and Engineering Literacy Framework, and the 2025 NAEP Mathematics andContinue reading “How Do We Engineer Engaging Learning and Assessment Tasks?“
The last time I published a blog was two months ago. Grant proposals and holidays left no time for writing a blog. Today, I am publishing the first of a two-part blog series on engaging learning and assessment content. In the first part, I will explain why engaging learning and assessment content is important forContinue reading “Why Are We Talking About Engaging Learning and Assessment Tasks?”
