I could see where you might use your calculator for the first prompt but I
didn't. I assumed they didn't want us to calculate but to explain the
misconception. There is a calculator on the computer for you to use if you
need one.

Look at the unifying themes and understand what they have to do with what
you teach.
Review standards. Look back at previous postings and use the websites they
recommend. If you have the book pathways by NSTA then study that. It was
very good. If you don't have it and are a member of NSTA Then you can
read it online. I don't know what to tell you for Science Technology and
Society. I would like to hear how other people studied for that part of
the assessment. That was a hard one for me.
On one of the past postings there was a web site for misconceptions in
science. That would be good to review.
What grade do you teach and have you taught?

• Thanks for the info. Do you still have the web site address for misconceptions in science? I used the benchmarks to study for Science, Technology and Society.

I used the benchmarks to study for Science, Technology and Society. They have
a whole chapter on that! I used the pathways book as well for that.

Anyways, I took the test yesterday. At least I was able to answer everything!
I'll just have to wait and see how it gets scored.

Does any know for sure when we get our scores back?

I took it last year and found it to be the easiest part of the whole NBCT process.  Look carefully over the materials NB sent you for preparation, they are really helpful and be sure to see which standards each portion of the assessment is looking for and find ways in your answers to show that you are clearly demonstating use of them.  Good Luck
