Participate in Project 2061's Comparability Study of Online and Paper Tests

As part of a US Department of Education-funded project, AAAS Project 2061 is developing multiple-choice assessment instruments to measure students’ understanding of ideas about energy. As part of that work, we want to find out if these tests perform equivalently when administered in a paper-and-pencil or computer-based format.  We are recruiting teachers who would be willing to administer the test with their students in November and December of 2016.

•  Students must be in 4th-12th grade.
•  The test would be administered to half of the class online and half in paper format.
•  The test should take no more than a single class period.
•  Registration deadline is October 12, 2016.
•  Go to www.research.net/r/p2061 for information and to register.
