South Dakota is part of Smarter Balanced Procurement Study. We have a group of teachers who wrote items The teacher(s) that you will be nominating should have knowledge in Science at the appropriate grade levels (Gr 5, 8 and 11). The purpose of the Dakota STEP Science Data Review is to review the field test items and their performance data from the spring 2012 Dakota STEP in order to determine each item's eligibility for use in future test administrations. Needed are teachers at grades 5, 8 and 11, teachers of English Language Learners, and special education teachers.
Please make sure this information reflects the teacher that you will be nominating.
