Supporting Teacher Practice to Facilitate and Assess Oral Scientific Argument...

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

In the first year of a 4-year project, researchers and curriculum developers from the Lawrence Hall of Science and Arizona State University are investigating the usability and impact of a tablet-based formative assessment tool designed to help middle school science teachers monitor and support oral argumentation in their classrooms. The DiALoG (Diagnosing the Argumentation Levels of Groups) formative assessment tool, which has shown promise in preliminary studies, offers a novel and practical way to analyze students’ collective oral argumentation practice, as well as support teachers in customizing instruction based on this analysis (Pearson, Knight, Cannady, Henderson, & McNeill, 2015). The project is enabling the refinement and expansion of the DiALoG tool and evaluation of its impact on teacher pedagogical content knowledge and formative assessment practices in widespread classroom use.
