NGSS Aligned STEM Resource - Learn More
The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association's STEM Center for Teaching and Learning™ (STEM CTL) develops high quality assessments to inform curriculum rigor, validity, teacher effectiveness, and student growth achievement.
To this end, the Engineering byDesign™ (EbD™) assessments reflect the growth of student knowledge, capabilities, and ways of thinking and acting. Highlights include:
Engineering byDesign™ Summative Assessments
The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association's STEM Center for Teaching and Learning™ has developed the only standards-based national model, Engineering byDesign™ (EbD™), for Grades PreK-12 courses that delivers technological literacy in an integrative STEM context.
The EbD summative student assessment is included with the EbD StandardEdition™ (SE™) and occurs at the end course. The EbD SE™ Assessment identifies what students have learned and also assesses student performance against previously identified standards. The EbD SE™ Summative student assessment is most often thought of as the final exam of the course, but it may also be a portfolio of student work.
The StandardEdition™ courses are downloadable pdf versions and can be purchased at our eStore.
Engineering byDesign™ BUZZ Assessments and Data Analytics
The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association's STEM Center for Teaching and Learning™ has developed the only standards-based national model, Engineering byDesign™ (EbD™), for Grades PreK-12 courses that delivers technological literacy in an integrative STEM context. Engineering byDesign™ BUZZ (EbD™ BUZZ), the online learning management system for the MediaRich™ Edition (MRe courses, offers a robust data analytics system. The pre- and post-assessments used in MRe™ courses are designed specifically to measure achievement of Standards for Technological Literacy (STL) content standards and corresponding benchmarks.
Students complete the pre- and/or post-assessment for an MRe™ course and the results are processed in real time. Administrators and teachers can access the results immediately by generating Test Analytics for the assessment.
