Assessing for Change in Chemical Thinking (ACCT) is an NSF-funded, research-practice partnership focused on fostering chemical thinking in middle school, high school, and undergraduate science classrooms using formative assessment strategies. ChemEd X has partnered with ACCT to disseminate the program materials, as it aligns with their mission of making digital chemistry teaching content and resources accessible. We encourage you to explore the ten session professional development series, (including facilitation guides, slides, and resources). In addition, the blog posts on formative assessments and the core program elements are accessible through the ChemEd X platform, free of charge. For inquiries, please contact ACCT at ACCTProject@umb.edu
Our collection here on ChemEd X includes:
Resources for doing formative assessment in the classroom
Studying how teachers enact formative assessment
Analyzing how students use chemical thinking
Together with ChemEd X, we strive to empower teachers of chemistry to Xplore, Xtend, and Xperience.
