Developing the Next Generation of Physics Assessments
written by James T. Laverty, Melanie M. Cooper, and Marcos D. Caballero
Science education at all levels is currently undergoing dramatic changes to its curricula and developing assessments for these new curricula is paramount.  We have used the basis of many of these new changes (scientific practices, crosscutting concepts, and core ideas) to develop sets of criteria that can be used to guide assessment development for this new curriculum.  We present a case study that uses the criteria we have developed to revise a traditional physics assessment item into an assessment item that is more aligned with the goals of current transformation efforts.  Assessment items developed using this criteria can be used to assess student learning of both the concepts and process of science.
