(but discussed in the supplement to this volume) may soon need to be reassessed.
Although the outcome of scientific investigations cannot be predicted, the committee believes that the estimates and probabilities in Tables 5.1 and 5.2 are reasonable because they are based more on developmental than basic research investigations. The factors considered in arriving at each prediction have been stated in as much detail as possible, in the belief that regular reappraisal of these factors is essential. The flexibility of the model described in this report makes it easy to substitute alternative or updated predictions as they become available.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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