Phenomena are at the heart of any high-quality assessment meant to align with three-dimensional science standards. But, not just any phenomena will do. In this session, the presenters will describe how they have used principled-assessment design (PAD) to support the selection and evaluation of phenomena for science tasks for use on classroom and large-scale assessments. Presenters will provide examples of PAD resources and processes, of phenomena and associated tasks, and of how phenomena can be adapted to ensure that students have the opportunity to demonstrate a range of sophistication within and across tasks.
