As per the announcements area on the front page of Mastery Manager, the new Next Generation Science Standards are now available and ready to be attached to assessments to view student growth over time.  The announcement page is re-posted below.




 

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)




Next Generation Science Standards are now available in Mastery Manager for the user whose state adopts these standards!

The first sections of the final version of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were released on April 9, 2013. The new science standards reflect a twenty-six state-led initiative funded by the Carnegie Corporation, coordinated by Achieve, and supported by leading science organizations, such as NSTA.

As currently presented, the NGSS consists of the following existing and planned sections:

  • Performance Expectations

  • Scientific and Engineering Practices

  • Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCI)

  • Cross-Cutting Concepts

  • Common Core Connections


The sections already released can now be viewed in Mastery Manager for the user whose state adopts these standards. The user can check out NGSS via the Standards menu of an assessment and align those standards to applicable assessment questions.
