Tags: krajcik, news

Joe Krajcik, professor of education and associate dean for research, was awarded a grant from Rutgers University/National Science Foundation in the amount of $94,065 to continue work on developing assessments for studying and validating learning progressions. The grant period is September 15, 2009 until April 30, 2010.

A “learning progression” is a term used to describe the idea that learning develops across extended periods of time—over multiple grades—rather than being limited as segments taught in distinct instructional units. According to Krajcik, learning progressions could provide frameworks for making decisions about what to teach, how and when to teach it, and what teachers can expect students to be able to do at different points along the progression.
