NGSS Assessment Portal

Next Generation Science Assessment

Online assessments using complex graphics and modeling for FREE !

Here you will find a set of tasks produced by the NGSA Collaborative, which consists of researchers and technology developers at the University of Illinois at Chicago, SRI International, Michigan State University, and the Concord Consortium. For more details about our work visit the main project website:

You can preview assessment tasks without an account, but signing up has many benefits. With a teacher account you can create classes, assign specific tasks, and get collated reports of student work. A detailed user manual for the portal can be found here. District, state, and other researchers are welcome to sign up as well

These look well done and allow teachers to assign to a class that they register in the Portal.
