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.
At the request of the Minnesota Department of Children, Families and Learning, Achieve reviewed school improvement efforts in Minnesota from two perspectives. First, Achieve and the Council for Basic Education (CBE) jointly reviewed the state's Profile of Learning, which specifies skills and knowledge students are expected to learn, and the state's support system and accountability policies. Achieve also conducted an intensive study of the quality, rigor and alignment of the 3rd and 5th grade Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCAs) to the Profile of Learning standards for reading, writing and math.
