Education standards are produced for each subject area over a given grade level. On a national and state scale, these provide criteria with which local groups can develop programs to instill scientific understanding and ability in students. This not only aids in curriculum development, but also supports powerful programs and shows teachers ways they can be more effective in the classroom. Review and revision continue as a means to achieving scientific literacy.
Regional State Standards
These standards provide nationally accepted criteria for teaching standards, professional teaching development, and educational assessment, content, programs, and systems. The site includes a description, history, and overview of the standards.
Benchmarks for Scientific Literacy
The benchmarks provide goals for mastery of science topics by grade level. The site includes description and history of the benchmarks.
