Abstract

Learning progressions are descriptions of increasingly sophisticated ways of thinking about or understanding a topic (National Research Council [NRC], 2007). They provide promising frameworks for assessing students’ understanding and learning. In our work to develop a learning progression for carbon-transforming processes, we involved participants from a wide age range (fourth grade through 11th grade) and from two countries (the United States [US] and China). We involved participants from a wide age range in order to develop a learning progression spanning naïve reasoning to sophisticated scientific reasoning.
