Experience or expertise/projects of note:

Part of the NRC Framework Committee, co-chaired NRC Committee on assessing the NGSS, funded by NSF and foundations to develop assessments for the NGSS for classroom formative use at MS and ES, was part of a team funded by NSF focused on climate change education with emphasis on zoos and aquariums, PI of project leading to revision of AP bio, chem & physics curriculum frameworks and assessments.

Reasons I’m excited about this project: 

It’s really important and needed and it poses a number of real design and implementation challenges to come up with something that can work and is transportable/generalizable  across schools, districts and states.
