why this effort
Why this effort?

NSES and SFAA/Benchmarks are over 10 years old

Much has been learned about science learning

Rapid growth of knowledge in science

Many calls/policy window open for change

why a conceptual framework
Why a Conceptual Framework?

To provide intellectual guidance

Blend current understanding of teaching and learning with new developments in science

Decouple what is otherwise an enormously complex and challenging task (experience from last time)

common core standards vs conceptual framework
“Common Core Standards” vs. Conceptual Framework
  • Different document grain size
  • Different authoring organizations
  • Different development process
  • Different feedback process
  • Different use
nrc study committee
NRC Study Committee

Highly respected scientists from multiple disciplines

Experts on science education

Experts on learning sciences

Experts on education systems and policy

Supported by 5 design teams

4 areas for design teams 1
4 areas for design teams +1

Physical sciences (Joseph Krajcik, UM)

Life sciences (Rodger Bybee, BSCS)

Earth and space sciences (Michael Wysession, WU at St. Louis)

Science in the designed world (Cary Sneider, Portland State U) (the other Portland)

Research and development for future revisions, needed research, etc.

critical challenges
Critical Challenges

Reaching consensus on what is core, at the right level of detail, in each dimension

Defining these concepts appropriately at a variety of grades (learning progressions)

Showing some examples of performance expectations that honor all axes of the frame

process principles
Process Principles


Partnership (NRC, Achieve, NSTA, AAAS)

Broad involvement of stakeholders

Expert review

nrc process
NRC - Process
  • Build on current initiatives and past experiences
  • Hold stakeholder meetings for informed input
  • Conduct study committee and design teams
  • Draft conceptual framework by early/mid summer 2010
  • Seek constituency feedback
  • Finalize draft in fall 2010
achieve inc process
Achieve, Inc. - Process
  • Translation of conceptual framework into standards
  • Revision of draft standards based on public input
  • Independent review
  • NRC Study Committee check of fidelity of standards based on framework
timeline of revision process
Timeline of Revision Process
