Modern science has been a voyage into the unknown, with a lesson in humility waiting at every stop. Many passengers would rather have stayed home.
As North Carolina students prepare for the 21st century, the state’s accountability program is also looking to the future for new ways of assessing student achievement. This session will explore online testing and the use of authentic or performance tasks to assess student skills and knowledge. Specific topics include: Online Test of Computer Skills, Online End of Course Test of Physics, optional online EOC testing, procedural changes such as pre-registering using NCRegistration.
