AAAS needs your help

Participate in Pilot Testing of Biology Assessments

As part of two projects funded by the U.S. Department of Education, AAAS Project 2061 is developing assessment questions to measure students' understanding of ideas about biology such as natural selection, heredity, speciation, human body functions, homeostasis and cellular respiration. We are currently recruiting high school science teachers willing to pilot-test these assessments with their students in the spring of 2017. The assessment is administered online and should take no more than a single class period.

To participate:

  • You must be a high school science teacher in the United States.
  • Your students must be in grades 9-12.
  • You must be able to reserve enough computers that have a reliable internet connection for all students in your classes on the day of testing.
  • To register, go to
