Finding 8-3: It is very difficult to compare the performance of sensor systems when the measurements are obtained and reported in different ways (e.g., solution concentration vs. amount of analyte bound to sensor surface; milligrams per milliliter vs. moles per liter vs. molecules per milliliter).
Recommendation 8-3: Common guidelines for reporting of the testing and performance of pathogen detection systems should be developed. This would aid in the comparison and evaluation of various sensor systems.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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