2-PS1-2: Materials Testing
Analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose. (Patterns)
Clarification Statement: Examples of properties could include, strength, flexibility, hardness, texture, and absorbency.
Assessment Boundary: Assessment of quantitative measurements is limited to length.
The following assessments were created by science teachers hoping to better understand the NGSS. In most cases teachers went from standard to assessment in around an hour. These are drafts and should be used accordingly. Feel free to improve these assessments or contribute to the collection. Learn more about assessment design here.
