AAAS Project 2061 - Participate in an Online Cognitive Interview Study of High School Biology Students

This message is from AAAS Project 2061  --  This summer and fall (2015), AAAS Project 2061 will be conducting cognitive interviews with high school students to learn what they know about evolution and common ancestry. This will help AAAS develop NGSS-aligned assessment items that effectively measure student understanding of these topics. In order to gain a broad picture of what students know and how they think, AAAS plans to interview students across the country using online video communication software such as Skype. Would you be interested in helping AAAS?

In order for your students to participate in the interviews:

  • You must be a science teacher in the United States.
  • Your students must be in the 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade.
  • You must have access to computers or tablets with web cameras at school.
  • You must be able to obtain permission to participate from the appropriate school or district personnel.
  • You must be able to obtain permission from participating students and their parents. (We will provide forms.)
