GRADE EXPECTATION RESOURCES
   
 

Science Grade Expectations
A grade expectation (GE) is a stated objective that relates directly to a Vermont standard and associated evidences. A GE differentiates performance on content knowledge or skills between adjacent clusters of grade levels (i.e., PreK-K, 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10). GEs describe clearly what students will do to show that they understand a designated science concept. As a set, GEs should lead to focused, coherent, and developmentally appropriate instruction without narrowing the curriculum and can be used for local curriculum and assessment development.

The GEs also are available in the following formats:
