Implementation of STEM K–12 Education Indicators

NORC at the University of Chicago has developed this website for annual reporting on State Science and Mathematics Assessment Policies through cooperation with the state departments of education and supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (#1544123). The online information is intended for use by decision-makers about student assessments, science and mathematics educators, and education researchers.

Assessment policies are reported by state and summarized across states to provide information about:

  • Required science and mathematics assessments as well as optional assessments
  • Design of assessments, administration, and reporting of results
  • Alignment of assessments to state content standards
  • Development of new assessments
