The purpose of this project was to develop a rubric to assess third through fifth grade students’ scientific understanding through NGSS modeling created via screencasts. Scientific modeling can better capture student understanding through screencasts because it shows student thinking through drawing, labeling, writing, and explaining verbally in recordings. It is easier for young children and English leaners to express their thinking by talking than by writing. This project utilized research on science rubric creation, and NGSS modeling to help develop a rubric. Expert reviewer feedback was utilized to revise the rubric into its final version.
