Science Content & Assessment Panel

Welcome

Content and Assessment Panel The Oregon Department of Education establishes a number of Content and Assessment panels to assist in the various activities that surround the academic content standards. The panels’ major responsibilities may include the following:

  • Review new field test items for content alignment, estimated difficulty, and grade level appropriateness, for subjects with statewide assessments.
  • Review and provide suggestions for revision (with input from other Oregonians) to the academic content standards, based on the benchmarking of Oregon Standards and assessments with national and international standards.
  • Review and develop materials designed to assist teachers in implementing the academic content standards, performance standards, and/or performance requirements.
  • Evaluate instructional resources matched to the academic content standards.

On Thursday, March 6, 2014, the Oregon State Board of Education (SBE) voted unanimously to adopt the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) as the new Oregon 2014 Science Standards. The adoption includes the grade level middle school science standards sequence unanimously recommended by the Oregon Science Content and Assessment Panel that was developed under the leadership of the California Science Experts Panel.
