Middle level teachers can familiarize themselves with NGSS-style assessment tasks. The website currently offers performance expectations clusters in areas of Chemical Reactions and Energy and Energy and Matter, with tasks for life science currently being developed. Teachers who register for a free teacher account can create classes, assign specific tasks, and get collated reports of student work. A detailed user manual can help teachers maximize the portal's resources.
