is important to keep in mind that traditional student rating forms often do not reflect an instructor’s effectiveness in less traditional teaching or testing environments.
Limit the use of rating forms. The use of student rating forms may reach a point of diminishing returns. If they are overused, neither students nor instructors will give them the level of attention required for fair evaluation of teaching or continued professional development by the faculty member in question.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. 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.
