Kansas Science Education Standards.
Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka.
This document presents standards, benchmarks, and examples that are designed to assist Kansas educators in selecting and developing local curricula, carrying out instruction, and assessing students' progress in science education. They also serve as the foundation for the development of state assessments in science. These standards represent high yet reasonable exceptions for all students. Each standard in the main body of the document contains a series of benchmarks which describes what students should know and be able to do at the end of a certain point (2nd, 4th, 8th, and 12th grades) in their education. Each benchmark contains a series of indicators that identify what it means for students to meet a benchmark. Indicators are frequently followed by examples which are specific, concrete ideas or illustrations of the standards writers' intent. (Contains 12 references.) (ASK)
