The Georgia Standards of Excellence for Science

On March 31, 2016, the State Board of Education approved the K-12 Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) for Science. The K-12 Science GSE should be implemented during the 2017-2018 school year. Please visit the Georgia Standards of Excellence for Science Webpage for resources and professional learning.

Performance Standards

Benchmarks for Science Literacy Grades 9-12

Performance standards provide clear expectations for instruction, assessment, and student work. They define the level of work that demonstrates achievement of the standards, enabling a teacher to know “how good is good enough.” Performance standards incorporate content standards, but expand upon them by providing suggested tasks, sample student work, and teacher commentary on that work.
