2017-18 Through Course Task (TCT) Expectations
All teachers of science (each grade, K-high school) must facilitate at least 2 TCTs during the 2017-18 school year using the recommended collaborative TCT process. Each district will submit one piece of student work for each of 2 different tasks at each grade level (rather than two pieces for the same task) in the late spring of 2018.
The TCT is one component of the Science Assessment System, and it is intended as an instructional resource rather than an assessment for accountability purposes. Thus, District Assessment Coordinators may wish to work with instructional supervisors, if applicable, to manage TCTs for the district and provide support for effective use of the TCTs within the Science Assessment System. This should help convey the appropriate message: TCTs are resources to support teaching and learning, and to facilitate an effective transition to our three-dimensional science standards. . Collected student work will be used for teacher professional learning, and not to evaluate teachers, schools, or districts.
