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.

This report presents the results of Achieve’s in-depth evaluation of the quality, rigor and alignment of New Jersey’s standards and assessments in language arts literacy and mathematics. In particular, it provides New Jersey policymakers with answers to the following questions:
- How do New Jersey’s education standards compare with those of high-performing states and nations? Are the expectations for New Jersey’s schools and students high enough?
- How well do the New Jersey assessments measure the knowledge and skills laid out in the standards?
