The Next Generation Science Standards and STEM Data
Roy Beven, Carolyn Frost, and Velma Itamura, Science Content Specialists, NWEA
Fusion 2012, the NWEA summer conference in Portland, Oregon

The expectations for student learning in K-12 science and engineering are about to drastically change. A majority of states are leading the development of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in partnership with Achieve, Inc. This presentation highlights some of the major changes and the data needed to monitor student understanding of the NGSS in the years to come.

Learning outcome:
- Review the draft Next Generation Science Standards focusing upon the major changes.
- Develop an understanding of student discourse during the practice of science and engineering.
- Make recommendations for future MAP Science assessments to gather STEM data

Audience:
- New data user
- Experienced data user
- Advanced data user
- District leadership
- Curriculum and Instruction

  • The National Research Council’s “A Framework for K-12 Science Education published in the summer of 2012 is THE guiding document for the NGSS. Funded by Carnegie Corp Having a research-based guiding document is quite different from the development of the Common CoreFewer, Higher, Clearer StandardsLimited number of core ideas within and across disciplinesLearning as an ongoing developmental progressionIntegrate content knowledge and practices of science and engineering

    5. 5. NGSS: May 2012 Draft• There are only 3 or 4 standards (1-2 for each of 3 science disciplines) for each elementary grade K-5.• There are 2-9 standards for each of the 4 disciplines, for middle (6-8) and high (9-12) school.• Each standard has several performance expectations.• Each performance expectation has 3 dimensions: Practice, Core Idea, Crosscutting Concept. http://www.nextgenscience.org/how-to-read-the-standards 5
