Oregon State Assessment System (OSAS) Science Phenomenon and Item Development Recruitment - Apply by March 20, 2019!

The Oregon Department of Education is recruiting qualified secondary educators to develop phenomena statements for OSAS Science Assessment item development. We will be holding a 3-day workshop in Salem, OR on April 2-4, 2019 to provide a deep dive into NGSS-aligned science item development. After receiving training on the process, participants will work in small groups to identify appropriate scientific phenomenon which will become the basis for new cluster-type items aligned to specified performance expectations for the Oregon Science Assessment. Participants will conduct research to find primary scientific sources related to the topic, and will begin to build item interactions supported by the real-world data.

Please complete this application by Wednesday, March 20, 2019. Accepted applicants will be notified by March 22, 2019. Participants will be compensated for their time or receive sub reimbursement as applicable.
