III. LEARNING ADVENTURES ASSESSMENTS (CPS)

Our Classroom Performance System is an interactive learning environment where the teacher sets up a lesson in the CPS software, hooks a data projector to the computer, and students participate in the lesson through the use of remote controlled keypads. This is an interactive way to assess your students' knowledge of their National Atomic Museum experience. You can provide us with a CPS compatible test before your trip, or choose from one of our subject and grade appropriate standardized exams which can be emailed and imported directly into most digital grade book programs.
Allow an extra 30 minutes for your visit.
