Science Resource Center. Our Projects. Automated Scoring for Argumentation In addition to promoting students’ understanding of Earth’s complex systems, this project supports students’ scientific argumentation practices through real-time automated scoring, diagnostics, and feedback. BigDataOur understanding of what K-12 students learn from engineering design is limited.

BigData responds to this problem by developing cutting-edge process analytics for K-12 engineering design research. Building ModelsMichigan State University and the Concord Consortium are collaborating to examine how to support secondary school students in constructing and revising models based on disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts to explain scientific phenomena and solve problems. CLEARCLEAR is a collaboration with UC Berkeley and the University of Toronto. CLEAR is building embedded assessments and new systems dynamics diagramming technology to explore cumulative learning about energy concepts in middle school.
