Chapters 3 and 4 discuss further some of the technical, human, and policy factors that may support or impede the successful introduction and widespread adoption of telemedicine applications such as those described here. If those planning for the implementation and evaluation of telemedicine programs are sensitive to these factors, they may be able to minimize certain problems at the outset as well as identify sources of problems that arise when the program becomes operational. The evaluation framework presented later in this report reflects this conclusion.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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