The American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) Project 2061 is seeking the help of high school science teachers in developing biology assessment questions as part of two projects funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
The questions will measure students’ understanding of ideas about biology such as natural selection, heredity, speciation, human body functions, homeostasis and cellular respiration. AAAS is recruiting high school science teachers willing to pilot-test these assessments with their students this spring. The assessment is administered online and should take no more than a single class period.
Participants must teach students in grades 9-12 and must be able to reserve enough computers that have a reliable internet connection for all students in the classes on the day of testing.
