APPLICATION IS ENGINEERING
ON THE SCIENCE MSP
Wendy Whitmer
REGIONAL SCIENCE COORDINATOR
NEWESD 101
Workshop One:
Application and Engineering Design
Supporting student success on the MSP and
beyond
Why are we here?
Overview of the Series
 Application and Engineering
Design
 Adjusting Instruction Based on
Student Data
 Implications for Instruction
Learning Intentions:
 Understand the technological design process as
described in the WA Standards and the NGSS
 Understand the student expectations for the
technological design process in Washington
State Standards
 Understand application item types as assessed
on the Measurement of Student Progress
Learning Intentions:
 Use student data to adjust instruction
 Apply understanding of the
applications/engineering in the classroom in
individual own context
 Identify Academic Vocabulary unique to the
Science MSP and the strategies to support ELL
students
What does Engineering Design look like
for students?

What NGSS Says About What Students
Should Know and Be Able to Do…
Examine the description of Engineering Design at your
grade level in the following documents:
 Appendix I from the NGSS
 Engineering, Technology and Application of Science
(ETS) standards from the NGSS
What NGSS Says About What Students Should Know and
Be Able to Do…
Share ideas from
your readings and
add student
expectations onto
the Engineering
Design poster
How do the Washington expectations
compare?
Examine the
application (APP) test
and item specifications
from the 2009
standards. Match
these expectations
with the NGSS
Engineering Design
Process steps.
Debrief
What similarities do you
recognize between the
current assessed
expectations and the
NGSS engineering
design process?

Post-Assessment
 Give it a try…
 Improve on your
answer
 Did you answer
both parts?
 Were your
responses clear?
Debrief
Where in this
challenge did you
have the
opportunity to
practice the
different elements
of the engineering
design process?
Tying back
 Where did the
redesign item fit
into our
Engineering
Design
placemat?
Implementation
How will this look in MY
classroom?
 The Zipline Challenge
 Where do you see
places for Engineering
Design in your
context?
Science and
Engineering
Practices:
Another Layer
How do the Washington expectations
compare?
• Examine the application (APP) test and item
specifications from the 2009 standards.
• Match these expectations Science and
Engineering Practices
How will students be expected to show
their understanding on the MSP?
How do these
example
assessment
items provide
evidence of
student
understanding?
Reflect
 What is your initial reaction to the
information about assessment?
 What potential areas of growth do
you see for you and your
students?
First Step
Narrow focus to Redesign in order to examine student work and
to plan for instructional shifts.
Your Tasks
 Administer the MSP style assessment item to your students
PRIOR to any additional instruction on engineering design.
 Collect and sort those student responses into High, Medium,
Low categories based on your own thinking.
 Bring those assessments to the next session for scoring
 Bring a student roster for recording student scores
 Engage students through the “Zip-Line” design challenge
activity.
 Note successes and challenges and be prepared to debrief the
experience at Session 2.
