"Monitoring Progress Toward Successful K-12 STEM Education: A Nation Advancing?" (National Research Council, 2013) describes a set of 14 indicators for assessing and tracking the health of pre-college STEM education in the United States. This 2012 National Survey of Science and Mathematics Education (NSSME), is the fifth in a series of studies dating back to 1977 and describes how the 2012 NSSME instruments align with the indicators, relevant results from the study, and lessons learned from the NSSME about how the indicators could be measured in the future. The report contains an appendix of Survey Questionnaires.
