The questions in this assessment are designed to be rigorous and require students to predict, reflect, connect, and think critically about the NGSS standards. Students will require minimal content knowledge, and when science content is unavoidable, students are asked simple questions from the grade 5 curriculum.


Assessed standards are as follows:

  1. Asking questions (science) and defining problems (engineering)
  2. Developing and using models
  3. Planning and carrying out investigations
  4. Analyzing and interpreting data
  5. Using mathematics and computational thinking
  6. Constructing explanations (science) and designing solutions (engineering)
  7. Engaging in argument from evidence
  8. Obtaining, evaluating and communicating information


Reflection requires students to examine a proficiency scale (rubric) and write descriptor statements for proficient responses.


Additionally, students score their own work and set goals for the year.
