ter accountability within programs by adding a standard to explicitly establish and identify who is accountable for specific protection functions.
Because the Research ERB is responsible solely for the protection of research participants, it should not be held accountable for matters of institutional interest such as risk-management and the resolution of conflicts of interest. Therefore, these issues should be referred to the research organization’s management for resolution or delegation.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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