STANDARDS FROM THE NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL
Since the release of the National Science Standards, teachers have been looking for curriculum resources which incorporate these new standards. Numerous Science Olympiad events have been used by the National Science Standards to illustrate standards in action. Science Olympiad illustrates the close relationship between teaching and assessment. 'Me assessment tasks are developmentally appropriate for young children, including recognition of students' physical skills and cognitive abilities. As students move from station to station displaying their understanding and ability in science, members of the community (leaders from government, business and industry, professors, scientist, educators, etc.) evaluate the students' science achievement and can observe that the students have had an opportunity to learn science. Science Olympiad highlights many of the elements of the Teaching Standards, Assessment Standards, Program Standards and Science Education System Standards.
