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.
In summer and fall of 1999, at the request of the State Department of Education, Achieve evaluated the quality, rigor and alignment of Oregon's standards and assessments in English and math. Oregon's assessment system included multiple-choice, short-answer and essay tests in 3rd, 5th and 10th grades, as well as a system for assessing some standards at the local level with common assessments.
