A draft tool that educators, school districts, and publishers will eventually be able to use to see if their instructional materials are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards is now available for review by the public.

The NGSS Primary Evaluation of Essential Criteria for Alignment is intended to help curriculum reviewers decide whether a program has "the essential features of an NGSS-based program." Once the guide is final, it can be used to conduct alignment studies of full science programs, kit-based materials, and textbooks.

The draft document is open for public comment on the NGSS website until July 1.
