SNAP Assessments for NGSS

SNAP has developed three types of assessments to model each component of our system of assessments

The assessments are developed for NGSS Performance Expectations (PEs) in Physical Science, Earth & Space Science, Life Science, and Engineering

Follow the links below to view samples of our three types of assessments. We will be releasing more assessments as they are developed and we frequently update these assessments as we revise and refine them.

 The resources that you find on this website are available to all. If you are unable to access any resource on the SNAP website, it is likely due to a firewall at your site. If you are blocked from opening a file, try opening it from another network.

Selected-response and constructed-response items designed to be used independently or in clusters

Short performance assessments (SPAs) designed to take ~30 minutes

Instructionally-embedded assessments (IEAs) designed to take 3-5 days
