The New Meridian
The New Meridian Science Exchange offers states the quickest, most cost-effective way to develop NGSS-aligned assessments that deeply investigate students’ scientific knowledge.
Twenty-first century success means that students understand and can apply scientific principles and practices to navigate an increasingly technical world. This is the main reason most states have adopted new science standards. Cost, time, and lack of science expertise, however, have prevented many states from adopting a truly three-dimensional science assessment. The misalignment between science curriculum and science assessment means students are taught to one standard and assessed by another, undermining educators’ efforts to deepen instruction and focus on critical inquiry and application.
The New Meridian Science Exchange addresses this gap, providing a better way for states to rapidly develop high-quality science assessments aligned to three-dimensional science standards.
Our industry leading review process combined with top science assessment leaders and expert assessment management ensures that states will never need to navigate the complexities of three-dimensional science assessments alone
The New Meridian Science Exchange is a flexible solution that measures the true depth of science learning. It enables states to securely license, contribute, and exchange science assessment items, increasing the supply of operationally ready test questions that are aligned to three-dimensional science standards.
The New Meridian Science Exchange is a powerful solution for states that strive for the best science assessment but may not have the budget or experts to do so. States can license test items with confidence that they have been vetted for fairness, bias, sensitivity, multi-dimensional performance, cognitive complexity, and technical quality.
