Abstract: The knowledge-in-use perspective states that useable knowledge allows for problem solving, explaining real-world phenomena, and constructing new ideas. We developed assessment tasks that measure students’ capacity to solicit and select from an array of the dimensions of scientific knowledge to make sense of an unfamiliar phenomenon. Evidence of knowledge-in-use includes depth of usable knowledge; flexibility in applying various ideas; and a robust community perspective. Our work shows that assessments can measure growth in knowledge-in-use.
