Moving to the Next Generation of Standards for Science: Building on Recent Practices. CRESST Report 762
Herman, Joan L.
National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing (CRESST)
In this report, Joan Herman, director for the National Center for Research, on Evaluation, Standards, & Student Testing (CRESST) recommends that the new generation of science standards be based on lessons learned from current practice and on recent examples of standards-development methodology. In support of this, recent, promising efforts to develop standards in science and other areas are described, including the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) 2009 Science Assessment Framework, the Advanced Placement Redesign, and the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI). From these key documents, there are discussions about promising practices for a national effort to better define science standards. Lastly, this report reviews validation issues including the evidence that one would want to collect to demonstrate that national science standards are achieving their intended purposes. (Contains 3 tables, 2 figures and 2 footnotes.) [This report was supported in part under the Educational Research and Development Centers Program, PR/Award Number R305B960002.]
