In 1994 with the initiation of Congress, the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI) created a panel for the evaluation of educational programs in the content areas of mathematics, science, gender equity, educational technology, and safe, disciplined drug-free schools. In 1998, the Expert Panel on Mathematics and Science Education examined mathematics education programs and surveyed science curriculum frameworks. This document identifies two exemplary and seven promising science education programs based on the quality of the program, its usefulness to others, educational significance, evidence of effectiveness, and success. Contact information for each program is provided. Contents include: (1) Introduction; (2) The Review Process; (3) How To Use These Recommendations; (4) Evaluation Criteria; (5) Exemplary Programs; and (6) Promising Programs. (YDS)
