"Next Generation Science Standards dive deep nurture a student's ability to apply scientific principles in everyday life," said Adam Blum, CEO and co-founder of OpenEd. "We're proud to offer educators and students thousands of new resources to enable them to test, explore, hypothesize and experiment in these important topics, providing a solid path to subject mastery."
OpenEd's science resources also include new prep quizzes for the science section of the ACT, as well as science items from the Navigate Item Bank™ from Certica Solutions, which are tied to new videos and other resources on a per standard, per question level. In addition, resources aligned to NGSS are now also aligned to Common Core when there are relevant cross-cutting standards for math and English Language Arts (ELA).
OpenEd also plans to have its library of NGSS resources searchable by the DCI statements, cross cutting concepts, or science and engineering practices plus it will show related CCSS MATH/ELA resources within a month.
As always, OpenEd returns resources in order of their proven efficacy in the classroom and their easy to use API allows any school district to easily insert OpenEd science resources into their current assessment technology.
OpenEd offers standards aligned K-12 resources. With a million assessments, homework, videos, games, and lesson plans, teachers can find just the resource they need. Depending on which questions each student answers incorrectly, OpenEd returns the exact video or game the student needs to watch in order to master that specific learning objective. OpenEd also studies the effectiveness of each resource, using that to suggest the best video for each student.
OpenEd's API is used by ed tech leaders such as Pearson, Renaissance Learning, Microsoft, Chalkable, Agilix, Pacific Metrics and many more to add OpenEd's standard aligned resources to their own tools. OpenEd was acquired by ACT in 2016 and is an ACT Assessment Technologies company.
