Videos

EiE has a Video Library of resources to help teachers using the EiE units.

Our How-To Videos show you how to organize and prepare materials before you teach an EiE unit. Handy tips and tricks help you save time and avoid common mistakes.

Classroom Videos show expert teachers facilitating EiE lessons in real classrooms nationwide. Documentary style footage captures the flow of lessons and shows you ways to facilitate activities and address challenges.

Our Spotlight Videos take a closer look at topics that are relevant to EiE practice, such as Preparing Hands-On Materials and Asking Productive Questions. Use these videos to refresh or expand your understanding of specific EiE design principles and teaching strategies.

Student Assessments

How much do your students know about engineering and technology? What have they learned through their experience with EiE? We provide assessments you can use for formative and summative evaluation. Many of these questions were originally designed for research purposes by EiE and have been tested for validity.

Administer our General Assessments (labeled A-1 through A-5) before and after teaching an EiE unit to see how students general understanding of technology and engineering changes. We provide Advanced (A) assessments for older students and Basic (B) assessments for younger students. Use EiE unit assessments to assess knowledge of the engineering and science concepts in a particular EiE unit

Student assessments used by EiE for research and evaluation are available on the “Research Instruments section” of the EiE Curriculum Research  page.
