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.

All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
The Student Work Analysis Tool (SWAT) is designed to analyze student responses to an CCSS or comparable college- and career ready standards aligned English language arts or mathematics task. The SWAT should identify key aspects of how performance indicates student proficiency and understanding with respect to the targeted standards. Additionally, the SWAT should illustrate levels of student proficiency through an analysis of student work samples from an exemplary unit.
