  Abstract: This session will address the question: What are learning progressions (LPs) and how can they be used in the classroom to determine the "next steps" for instruction? Several hands-on activities will illustrate how classroom teachers can use science LPs to: (1) evaluate the scope of current assessments across the year; (2) plan curriculum sequences using research-based learning continua; and (3) use ongoing assessment data to monitor student progress. Examples of how teachers in several states are designing assessments to determine where students are along the continuum of learning using LPS will be shared.
