In conclusion, although SSA has deferred a major redesign of the disability decision process, the committee believes that it is paramount that the determination of disability not only be timely, understandable, straightforward, and feasible, but also provide accurate and consistent decisions that are fair to the claimant and to the government. To this end the committee believes that SSA should undertake a systematic, long-term program of research—intramural and extramural—that provides baseline information on all key aspects of the current disability decision process and subsequent evaluative data on all future change aimed at improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the work disability determination process currently in use in the United States.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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.
