Investigating the Influence of Standards: A Framework for Research in Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education
work is needed to represent the education system, how reform ideas (such as standards) move through the system, and possible system and learner responses to the standards. In essence, such a “framework” represents a conceptual map—a set of organizing categories and presumed relationships among them—and a set of guiding questions to prompt inquiry within the map’s territory. Schematically, this document’s Framework can be represented as in Figure 8–1.
