BOX 4–4 Keymath Diagnostic Arithmetic Test
Here the range for successive grades is shown on the left side of the figure. Shown on the right are arithmetic tasks that are typically learned during that year. That is, tasks in each band are examples of tasks that the average student in that grade probably could not complete correctly at the beginning of the year, but probably could do by the end of the year.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
