Abstract
Through previous development grants from IES and the National Science Foundation, researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute developed 16 virtual laboratory simulations and 57 inquiry activities aligned to Next Generation Science standards in physical, life, and earth science. This project will develop Inq-Blotter, a dashboard to provide teachers real-time formative and summative assessment reports on middle school students doing science inquiry. When using the Inq-Blotter reporting dashboard, teachers will receive class and student-level reports, automatically generated in real-time as students work through laboratory activities. The dashboard will also include teacher resources to support the alignment of the labs to learning goals, and to assist with implementation.
