Abstract

This paper is based on assessment data collected in a high school biology classroom in Illinois, with a focus on how online student reflections are used as a both an evaluation and assessment tool to examine specifically how students build understanding of curriculum content. In particular, the assessment tool was collaboratively created by the classroom teacher and a graduate teaching scientist fellow in neuroscience, both of whom were participants in a significant partnership sponsored by the National Science Foundation that places graduate student scientists in K-12 education programs.
