The Science collaborative is dedicated to the support of its members in the successful implementation of college- and career-ready state science standards. The Science Collaborative embraces a state-directed and state-led process, building capacity by collaborating in the development of examples of high-quality assessment products aligned to standards informed by the Framework for K-12 Science Education.
The Science Collaborative offers three in-person meetings over the membership cycle. During these meetings members focus on sharing insights and collaboration around specific needs pertaining to standards implementation. The Collaborative is composed of Science Assessment staff within state education agencies. Through these meetings, members develop tools and resources designed to support successful standards implementation and have access to invited guest experts presenting on cutting edge research and information, professional learning opportunities, and innovative projects relevant to science standards, curricula, instruction, and assessments.
