NGSS Sample Assessments for Grades 6-8

Our school is currently transitioning to the integrated NGSS model which involves teachers from 6-8 to teach physical, life, and earth science.  With that said, I was hoping that someone would be willing to share sample assessments that will help guide me in the right direction when creating assessments for my students.

Hi Randall.
Measured Progress has created formative assessments built to NGSS topics and performance expectations for middle school (6-8), called STEM Gauge. Elementary (K-5) is also available. These assessments are built to the integrated NGSS model. The teachers guide is designed to help you make the most of the resources available, and be able to use them to elicit evidence of student understanding of the 3 dimensions.


There are also recorded webinars available to help support you as you transition to NGSS assessment.
Good luck!
