As Test Date Looms, Educators Renewing Emphasis on Science
Cavanagh, Sean
Education Week, v24 n29 p1, 14-15 Mar 2005
After scrambling to raise students' skills in math and reading, state and school administrators are beginning to place renewed emphasis on science, with the approaching mandates of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) squarely in mind. That effort is taking shape on many fronts, from the design of new tests in science subjects to the revamping of courses to cover the material on those exams. This article talks about standards for science testing as a requirement under NCLB. Under the federal law, states are required to have academic-content standards in place for science and they must test students in science at least once in each of the 3-5, 6-9, and 10-12 grade spans.
