Idaho Science Standards

Idaho’s Science Standards (approved in 2022)
These standards ask students to think and act like scientists by engaging in the heart of science – INQUIRY. This paradigm shift requires students to demonstrate command of knowledge of scientific principles, processes, and content by performing as scientists do.
These documents show how the Disciplinary Core Ideas are spiraled and connected across grade bands from early elementary (K-2), to upper elementary (3-5), to middle school (6-8), and eventually to high school (9-12)
Students are assessed on the science standards using the Idaho Science ISAT at the end of 5th grade, 8th grade, and 11th grade.
