Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)


NGSS by Discipline Core Ideas (DCI)

DCI's are the fundamental ideas that are necessary for understanding a given science discipline. The core ideas have broad importance within or across science or engineering disciplines, provide a key tool for understanding or investigating complex ideas or solving problems, relate to societal or personal concerns, and can be taught over multiple grade levels at progressive levels or depth and complexity.

NGSS by Topic

The topics arrangements of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) include the same performance expectations as in the DCI arrangements, but the PEs are bundled differently. At the beginning of the NGSS writing process, the writers arranged the Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) into topics around which to develop the standards in order to eliminate potential redundancy, seek an appropriate grain size, and seek natural connections among the DCIs.
