After 24 years in the K-12 education space, Achieve has shut its doors. Read the statement from Michael Cohen, President of Achieve here.
Our website www.achieve.org will remain available through December 31, 2020.
Former Achieve science team members have founded the NextGenScience project at WestEd where they will continue working with educators and partners across the nation to improve the quality of science education. Please visit their website and @NextGenScience to learn more about their work. They will continue to serve as stewards of the NGSS, sharing resources with the field through the nextgenscience.org website, NGSSNow newsletter, and @OfficialNGS.
All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
Michigan has been a partner with Achieve since 1998, when the state, under the leadership of the governor, helped launch the pilot study that became the Benchmarking Initiative. Achieve evaluated the quality of the state's academic standards and assessments in elementary, middle and high school. Since that time, Michigan has made steady progress by developing grade-by-grade content expectations in reading/English language arts and math to serve as the basis for annual assessments.
