The Time is Now: The Need for Data Mining for Performance Assessment for NGSS Practices
Dr. Janice Gobert will present an overview of the need for use of data mining techniques to realize teachers’ assessment needs and students’ learning of NGSS. Additionally, both the challenges and benefits will be discussed. Lastly, an overview to Inq-ITS, an innovative platform for science inquiry assessment and learning, will be given. With Inq-ITS, while “students” show what they know and get real time feedback from Rex, our cartoon dinosaur, teachers get real-time, actionable reports and alerts, identifying which students need help, and on what subcomponents of the respective inquiry practices.
