Stanford NGSS Assessment Project (SNAP)

Funded by the S.D Bechtel Jr Foundation, this project explores how performance assessments can be used to support implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The project began with a proposal of a coherent assessment system for NGSS and offers sample performance tasks that could be used to support student learning, inform instruction, and monitor progress. The project also produced a toolkit for states, districts, and teachers to use to guide the development and use of performance assessments to support teaching and learning with NGSS and a series of hybrid online courses to provide instruction on effective use of the toolkit.
