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 2002, Achieve reviewed the strengths and weaknesses of the state's K–12 standards in English language arts and math, comparing them to Achieve's benchmark standards and to the ACT Standards for Transition. We also conducted two different alignment studies: one to determine how well Oklahoma's tests matched its standards in English language arts and math and a second to see how well the ACT tests in English, reading and math matched Oklahoma's standards.
