Research Institution

In this project, the team will develop a performance-based lab for the high school level. The Inq-ITS Performance Based Labs for High School Physics and Physical Science will integrate "using mathematics" practices with other science practices to study physics/physical science phenomena. An accompanying teacher dashboard will generate immediate, diagnostic, and actionable alerts driven by algorithms that assess how students integrate using mathematics practices during their virtual investigations. Teachers use the insights gleaned from the immediate alerts to inform individual and whole classroom instructional practices. Resources to be developed will support the alignment of the labs to learning goals, and to assist with implementation.
