Abstract: In 2014, the National Research Council posited five criteria for assessments that engage students in scientific practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas (also known as “three-dimensional assessment”). Multiple efforts have been conducted to design and study three-dimensional assessments in K-12 science classrooms; yet these projects have employed different approaches while generating different guidelines and tools. This symposium brings together members of five research teams to reflect on the NRC criteria using examples of three-dimensional assessments. Through a collective analysis of these teams’ current design approaches, we identified six emergent criteria for three-dimensional assessment design that promote equity: (1) assessments are based on a relevant phenomenon or scenario, (2) explicitly attend to language, (3) include scaffolds to make expectations explicit for students, (4) attend to the identities of learners, (5) engage and support student sensemaking, and (6) are accompanied by tools and routines to support teacher design and enactment.
