NEW WEBSITE IS LAUNCHED!!!
PEAR (Program in Education, Afterschool and Resiliency), a Harvard-Mclean Hospital program led by Dr. Gil Noam, is pleased to announce a searchable database of assessment tools for informal science, especially in museums, schools, afterschool and summer programs.
ATIS -Assessment Tools in Informal Science – was developed based on recommendations from a PEAR report funded by the Noyce Foundation. In a yearlong study, PEAR conducted a critical review of available assessment resources. ATIS is a product of this report; a resource designed to help practitioners, evaluators, researchers and policymakers select appropriate tools to assess the quality of science learning and child outcomes especially in -out -of school time programs.
Explore the website at http://atis.pearweb.org/ to find descriptions, ratings and reviews for 16 assessment tools and search by age, domain and assessment type to find the right tools to measure performance of informal science, technology, engineering and math programs.
