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.
The EQuIP rubrics are designed to evaluate:
- Lessons that include instructional activities and assessments aligned to the CCSS or the NGSS that may extend over a few class periods or days
- Units that include integrated and focused lessons aligned to the CCSS or the NGSS that extend over a longer period of time
- The rubric is NOT designed to evaluate a single task or activity
- The rubrics do not require a specific template for lesson or unit design

The EQuIP Rubric electronic feedback forms are organized by each dimension in the rubric with space to indicate which criteria are observed or not observed in the lesson or unit, a space to provide written feedback and suggestions for improvement, and a space to assign a dimensional rating. The last page of the feedback form is used to assign an overall rating and provide summary feedback and suggestions for improvement.
To use these forms you must have the most recent version of Adobe Reader downloaded to your computer. If you are a Mac user, you will need to set your default reader to be Adobe Reader instead of Preview. If you are using a tablet, please download the free Adobe Reader app to your tablet. If you plan on using a tablet, please create an Adobe Reader account on the Adobe website. This will allow you to save your work on the Adobe Cloud.

EQuIP Rubric for Lessons & Units: Science
The EQuIP Rubric for science provides criteria by which to evaluate the alignment and overall quality of lessons and units with respect to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). As more NGSS-aligned lessons and units are developed, this rubric may change to meet the evolving needs of both educators in evaluating materials and developers in the modification and creation of materials. Additional support materials will also be developed to complement the use of this rubric, such as a professional development guide, a criterion discussion guide and publishers’ criteria that will be more focused on textbooks and comprehensive curricula.
