AAAS Project 2061 is working with WestEd to help all students be more successful on standardized tests in science. In particular, we are working to improve tests so that they are more effective for students whose primary language is other than English. Our NSF-funded project looks at how language is used in the test items themselves, such as whether certain words or phrases make the test sentences harder to understand when a student is learning English. We are recruiting 9th grade science teachers with significant numbers of Spanish-speaking students. Teachers must be willing to administer a 30-item multiple-choice test to their students.

In order to participate:

You must be a science teacher in the United States. Your students must be in the 9th grade. Your classes should consist of between 1/3 to 2/3 native Spanish speakers. You must reserve enough computers with a reliable internet connection for all students in your

classes on the day of testing (1 per student).

Registration deadline is November 20, 2017. Please go to https://www.research.net/r/p2061 for information and to register.

Private donations fund our operating budget, education and research efforts.
