Science and Engineering Education Indicators

Posted by on September 15, 2006


2006 New indicators from the National Science Board (NSB) provide a broad base of quantitative information on science, mathematics, and engineering education at all levels; the scientific and engineering workforce; U.S. and international research, development, and competitiveness in high technology; and public attitudes on the understanding of science and engineering. Concern about the relationship of science and mathematics achievement to American global competitiveness, work-force preparation, and development of an educated citizenry continues to fuel efforts to improve student performance in those areas. This report examines U.S. students’ mathematics and science achievement; compares it with that of their international peers; and highlights developments, trends, and conditions influencing the quality of U.S. elementary and secondary
mathematics and science education.
