Make Sure Your Assessments Match California's Science Content Standards

New Science  Assessments Help You Focus Instruction

When you teach with Focus on California Standards, it is evident exactly which content standards have been mastered and which need further instruction. Two forms of assessment are provided to help you.

Extended Response

The Extended Response Assessments are intended to evaluate your students’ ability to synthesize and apply the content and concepts identified in the California Science Content Standards. They are designed to be used after a major unit of study, or as an end-of-year assessment.

Check Understanding

Check Understanding Assessments are designed to assist you in evaluating your students’ knowledge of California’s Science  Content Standards. Check Understanding assesses the content of each Focus on California Standards book. You will find multiple choice and short answer questions that assess literal and interpretive comprehension of each book’s content. They are designed to be used after reading each book.
