Science Education Standards (NSES)
The National Science Education Standards (NSES) outline what students
need to know, understand, and be able to do to be scientifically literate
at different grade levels. The NSES are the product of the efforts
of many individuals and groups, with major funding by the National
Science Foundation. See a more
complete explanation of the NSES on the National Academy Press
Other state standards frameworks and curriculum
frameworks can be used to search for tasks in PALS, if they have
been mapped to the National Science Education Standards (NSES). See
available frameworks below. Contact us
to discuss how you can index the science standards of your state,
district, or program to the NSES if you would like your teachers to
be able to search for PALS tasks linked to your standards.
