According to all three evaluation methods, US-based research in immunology plays a dominant role in the worldwide effort. Within the limitations of each measure and the limits of the panel's use of them, the data produce a strikingly consistent outcome: all three approaches assigned a 2:1 to 3:1 dominance vis-a-vis the rest of the world. Of course the dominance needs to be weighed in relation to the relative richness of the United States in numbers of investigators, institutions and resources.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.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