JwJ Mission Statement - Through the mediums of science, technology and space, we at Jam With Jupiter are looking to build an informative and creative environment in which the students can learn in a unique way. Although the curriculum is heavily set in science, our two-pronged approach encapsulates music as well as science. Our instructors are both musicians and scientist themselves, and the students are encouraged to inquire about both. It is our strong belief at Jam With Jupiter that adding a strong creative component to the science, not only improves information retention in the students, it creates a fun and exciting atmosphere for the students to learn in. Not only do we want to deepen the student’s knowledge about technology, science, space and music, we aspire to create a lasting positive experience for the students. In the end, who doesn’t want to jam with Jupiter?
7 Criteria for Procuring and Evaluating High-Quality and Aligned Summative Science Assessments
Jam with Jupiter assesses for the 7 essential criterion of Next Generation Science Standards. Assessments provide evidence of student knowledge and practice described by the targeted
standards by requiring students to use the three dimensions (science and engineering
practices, disciplinary core ideas, crosscutting concepts) to identify and interpret evidence and
engage in scientific reasoning as they make sense of phenomena and address problems.
- Three-Dimensional Performance
- Cognitive Complexity
- Technical Quality
