Summary

Below are links to over 40 tables displaying data collected from all of the states and D.C. about their mathematics and science assessment policies and programs for the 2017-18 school year. We trust that this comprehensive presentation provides useful representations of how we are assessing math and science for K-12 students across the country. As always, please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions you may have for additional data collection or improvements to the site. Thank you.
