Over the course of many months and in collaboration with numerous science education stakeholders across New York State, the New York State Education Department spearheaded the development of draft New York State P-12 Science Learning Standards. The Education Department recently posted the draft New York State P-12 Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) for public preview. This draft may be accessed at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/ciai/mst/sci/nys-p12-science-ls-intro.html.
In order to collect feedback related to the draft NYSSL, the Department has posted a survey allowing respondents to rate the draft NYSSLS against a set of research-based standards evaluation criteria. The survey may be accessed at https://www.research.net/r/DRAFT-NYS-Science-Learning-Standards. The feedback received will inform revisions to the draft NYSSLS prior to presenting them to the Board of Regents for discussion and eventual adoption.
Thank you, in advance, for participating in this important survey. The survey will remain open until close of business on Friday, February 5, 2016.
