Drawing energy: Evidence of Next Generation Science Standards for energy in diagrams
written by Kara E. Gray and Rachel E. Scherr
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) promote a model of energy that includes the ideas that energy is conserved, that energy can be tracked as a flow through a system, that energy transfer occurs through a variety of mechanisms, and other ideas. The NGSS also promotes the practice of developing and using representations of scientific concepts such as energy. We articulate the NGSS model of mechanical energy and translate it into a rubric for assessing energy diagrams. We assess the alignment of both professional and learner energy diagrams with the NGSS, and assess a class's increased facility with NGSS-aligned energy diagrams. The purpose of this research is to develop a tool for assessing students' ideas about energy and the effectiveness of energy instruction.
