The NGSS have undergone numerous evolutions since their inception. Among the most powerful (and most recent) are the addition of evidence statements. The three dimensions—disciplinary core ideas, science and engineering practices, and crosscutting connections—already provide context for how students can demonstrate knowledge and how the performance expectation can be applied. The new evidence statements take this process a step further.

Although the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were released more than five years ago, many teachers still feel uncomfortable about implementing them. To make it easier to teach to the NGSS requirements for rigor and depth, and engage students in three dimensional learning, Accelerate Learning today announces STEMscopes™ NGSS 3D.
