Marking the culmination of a three-year, multiphase process, on April 10th, 2013, a 26-state consortium released the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school.

Next Generation Science Standards: For States, by States, published by the National Academies Press, is the authoritative print version of those standards released online by Achieve, Inc.

The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report, A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
