Finding 7-4: Research described above is being pursued in a very large number of university, government, and industrial laboratories. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to compare results and to evaluate progress because a variety of measurement units are used to report (or not report) results.
Recommendation 7-4: A standardized reporting scheme for sensor description needs to be developed. It should be based on performance requirements such as affinity, specificity, speed, false positive rate, cost, manufacturability, and other criteria.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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.
