"Create & Take Tests" on the AAAS Assessment Website
Teachers can now develop and administer their own science tests using items from the AAAS Science Assessment website. A new “Create & Take Tests” module added to the AAAS Science Assessment website allows users to choose from the site’s more than 700 test questions in 16 science topics to assemble multiple-choice tests that can be administered and scored online. So far, close to 2,400 tests have been created.
Since its launch last year, the AAAS Science Assessment website has been used extensively, and usage continues to grow. According to data provided by Google Analytics, the site has received nearly 116,000 visits and now has over 14,000 registered users. There are also about 1,300 links to the site from external sources.
