Science and AYP
  • The State will require that all elementary and middle schools make Science as their AYP second indicator starting with a hold harmless year in 2011-2012 and with full implementation in the 2012-2013 school year.
  • A science AMO will be set by the end of this year (December 31, 2011).
surveys of enacted curriculum sec
Surveys of Enacted Curriculum (SEC)
  • Support education research
  • Evaluate effects of initiatives and programs
  • Examine instructional practices
  • Improve Instructional Alignment
  • Examine curriculum articulation across grades
  • Examine curriculum consistency within grades

Surveys of Enacted Curriculum (SEC)

  • What are the Surveys of Enacted Curriculum (SEC)?
  • It is a practical, reliable set of data collection tools being used with teachers to collect and report consistent data on current instructional practices and content being taught in classrooms.
  • How are the Survey of Enacted Curriculum administrated?
  • Teachers complete the survey questions through an online, web-base system. Upon completion, the group data are reported in user-friendly charts and graphs to facilitate analysis of differences across classrooms, schools, or districts.
  • What are the educational applications of SEC data?
  • Alignment of instruction, standards, and assessments
      • To what degree are the content topics and expectation on the state standards being taught in the classroom?
      • Is the content being taught with sufficient rigor or depth?
      • Are the expectations for students, as reported by their teachers, consistent with the defined expectations on the state assessment?
      • To what degree might the misalignment of instruction be related to lower student achievement?

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

Achieve will take the lead in developing aligned Science standards in partnership with states and key stakeholders by late 2011 or early 2012. These new National Science Standards will:

  • Focuses on a limited number of core ideas in Science and Engineering both within and across disciplines
  • Based on the notion of learning progressions
  • Involves the integration of both knowledge of scientific explanations and the practices needed to engage in scientific inquiry and engineering design
  • Take into consideration the knowledge and skills required for science literacy, college readiness, and for pursing further study in STEM fields
  • Provide a platform for the development of aligned, high quality assessments, curricula and instructional materials.

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)


  • The National Science Framework was release on July 17, 2011.
  • Expected completion of the New Generation of National Science Standards by Achieve is December, 2012 .
  • Precision review of the Science GPS will be conducted in the Spring-Summer of 2013.
  • Tentative date to submit revised Science GPS for adoption by the Georgia Board of Education in the Summer of 2013.
  • Professional Development for teachers on the revised Science GPS in the 2013-2014 school year.
  • First year of implementation of the revised Science GPS in the 2014-2015 school year .
  • Assessments will be aligned accordingly at this time. New assessments on 2015-2016 school year.
