This evaluation report describes the benefits that students are getting from their districts' participation in the California K-8 NGSS Early Implementers Initiative. The findings are drawn from surveys of administrators, teachers, and students; interviews with select administrators and teachers; and classroom observations of 22 case study teachers. The report also presents an extended vignette of a grade 4 lesson to illustrate the student experiences and benefits that occur in NGSS instruction.
