Lens on Science is a computer adaptive standardized measure of science learning validated for use with low-income preschool children.
Nebraska evaluators will:
- administer the Lens on Science assessment to 10 preschool children per classroom at Educare Lincoln;
- assist the Early Science Initiative in collecting video clips from classrooms on teachers engaging in science activities; and
- monitor and provide technical support to teachers during their participation on completing online questionnaires.
Additionally, Nebraska evaluators will record 30-minute video clips at each preschool classroom.
