Our mission is to develop tools that will support the integration of performance-based learning and assessment into policy and practice. We are using these curriculum, assessment, and design tools to build capacity among educators, administrators, and policymakers in creating meaningful learning experiences for all students, especially for those traditionally underserved in science classrooms.
SCALE has created NGSS-designed/aligned, project-based curricula with embedded performance assessments. All of the curricula shared here are free and can be downloaded for classroom use.
SCALE supports educators in using our materials through a variety of professional learning experiences. Visit the links below to learn about the in-person workshops designed to support teachers in using SCALE's curriculum and assessments or in designing their own. You can also find information about a series of free hybrid online courses on developing and using 3D performance assessments from the Stanford NGSS Assessment Project.
SCALE has created tools to guide educators, administrators, curriculum developers and policymakers in the development and use of systems of assessment for NGSS that include performance assessments. Visit this page to find assessments, development frameworks, and more.
