Secondary Science Screener
What is the Secondary Science Screener?
The Davis School District Secondary Science Screener is an assessment designed for secondary science students and is to be administered in March. These multiple-choice assessments are based on the Utah State Science Core Curriculum and provide teachers with information about whether or not their students are mastering the information taught in their courses. The data produced from these assessments is intended to guide instruction and to provide targeted interventions for students who fail to demonstrate mastery. Participation is optional for schools and no data will be used in any type of teacher evaluation.
