Science Course Level Expectations:
A Framework for Instruction and Assessment

The Science Course Level Expectations outline related ideas, concepts, skills and processes that form the foundation for understanding and learning science. It includes updates to the April, 2005 K-12 Science Grade Level Expectations. In addition, it provides a framework to bring focus to teaching, learning, and assessing science. The Course Level Expectations (CLEs) for Physical Science, Physics I, Chemistry I, Biology I, and Earth & Space Sciences outline rigorous science expectations for students enrolled in traditional or integrated courses that will prepare them for success in college, the workplace, and effective participation in civic life.

Since the Outstanding Schools Act of 1993, several documents have been developed prior to the 2005 K-12 Grade Level Expectations to aid Missouri school districts in creating curriculum that will enable all students to achieve their maximum potential. Those include: \
• The Show-Me Standards which identify broad content knowledge and process skills for all students to be successful as they continue their education, enter the workforce, and assume civic responsibilities
      • The Framework for Curriculum Development which provides districts with a “frame” for building curricula using the Show-Me Standards as a foundation
• The Assessment Annotations for the Curriculum Frameworks which identify content and processes that should be assessed at the local and state level in grades 4, 8, and 10 mathematics
