Assessing Computational Thinking in Making Activities

NSF Awards: 1543124

2016 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

ACTMA’s aim is to create an embedded, adaptive, and culturally unbiased formative assessment of computational thinking (CT) in STEM that can be used in informal learning spaces such as makerspaces, but can also be brought into formal physics classroom experiences. ACTMA (Assessing Computational Thinking in Making Activities) addresses the current lack of a formative assessment that can evaluate student acquisition of CT skills as well as guide the design of learning activities. This video will document our process as we develop activities and assessments.
