I am interested in this as well. We are developing a standards based report card for grades K - 8 and we are having a lot of difficulty with science. I would appreciate anything including ideas, samples, what's worked, what's not worked from others in this same situation.

We are looking at changing to a standards-based assessment to replace the traditional letter-grade report card for grades 1-4. Does anyone have examples or suggestions for where we might look? We want to align to the NGSS.

You might want to check out Sadlier Reading Progress. I previewed it last year and now our school's language arts committee is reviewing it. It integrates CCSC language and reading with grade-level science and social studies content. We haven't adopted anything yet, but so far it looks quite promising. The lessons some of us have used with our students worked very well.
