Utah SEEd Assessments

Are you teaching with the new Utah science standards and wondering about how to assess them? Utah SEEd standards for k-5th grade were implemented in the fall of 2020. (that is right…this weird teaching year 2020 was when they were implemented. Some schools and districts managed to get some training on the Utah SEEd standards before social distancing kicked in. Also, UEN managed to put together some online training for teachers. https://www.uen.org/development/information.shtml

Still, many teachers are trying to understand how to teach and assess the Utah SEEd (Science Education with Engineering Standards) so that they can give their students the best experience possible. I have a whole blogpost on Utah SEEd and also one on using the Science and Engineering Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Phenomena to engage students.

More on Utah SEEd here.

I have created practice assessments for you to use. They cover all the strands of Utah SEEd for third, fourth, and fifth grades. You can purchase them here on teachingscience.us or in my TPT Store. They go perfectly with my Utah SEEd bundles.

These Utah SEEd assessments can help Utah teachers to assess learning and provide practice for formal testing. These Utah SEEd resources are tied directly and specifically to the Utah SEEd standards.

Do you need help understanding the Science and Engineering Practices or Crosscutting concepts for Utah SEEd? I have posts for those topics as well.

The three dimensions of Science include the Science and Engineering Practices, the Crosscutting Concepts, and the Disciplinary Core Ideas.

Thank you for visiting! Check out my Five Best Practices for Teaching Science blog post. If you are looking for NGSS Assessments you can find them on this post NGSS Assessments.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.
