In the state of Nebraska, starting with the 2011-2012 school year, students in 5th, 8th, and 11th grade are required to take an online statewide science assessment, known as the NeSA Science test.

This test is built using the newly adopted Nebraska State Science Standards and their indicators to help assess a student'™s knowledge over a variety of science topics, such as inquiry, life, earth, and physical science.

The Nebraska Department of Education has released a set of key science vocabulary terms that students in 5th, 8th, and 11th will be required to know for the upcoming NeSA Science test given this spring.

Mr. Steve Shannon, a science teacher at Wahoo High School, has created a series of "ÂÂœflashcards" to help Wahoo Public School students study for their NeSA science vocabulary words that will appear on the state science test.

Students will be able to use their computers to virtually flip through the stack of flashcards to study the science words using the website www.quizlet.com. The website will also "ÂÂœread" the science words and definitions to the students who may need assistance, due to visual limitations, as well.

The iPad and iPhone also have a free app that can be downloaded called "Flashcardlet," that will allow students to download these vocabulary words to study, as well. These sets of vocabulary terms, along with other resources and practice tests, are organized by grade for students and parents to access below:
