Assessment opportunities in STEM

Use effective assessment in STEM to monitor student progress, provide feedback and inform future pathways for student learning. Within integrated STEM learning sequences, you may plan assessment using a variety of strategies such as:

  • teacher observations and feedback: both informal and informal as the students interact with the design challenge
  • peer and self-assessment: regular sharing and review of ideas, prototypes, and final products
  • collaborative activities: group work, group discussions, presentations of their STEM innovations
  • practical activities: investigations, programming digital technologies, discussions.

As STEM includes cross-curricular outcomes, opportunities to monitor student progress may be planned within specific key learning areas. For further information and a range of strategies to monitor student progress, view K-6 assessment strategies and Primary assessment tools.
