STEM Attributes & Rubric
What makes for a quality STEM program?
Working with the N.C. Department of Public Instruction, the William & Ida Friday Institute for Education Innovation, the Golden LEAF Foundation and others, NC STEM Learning Network has developed a comprehensive list of STEM attributes. These attributes – a checklist of characteristics that are hallmarks of programmatic quality in STEM education – are based on local, state and national research and public feedback from 125 practitioners, educators, and business leaders.
These attributes have been adopted by the North Carolina State Board of Education and will serve as the standard measure of quality STEM programs in the state.
These key partners also have updated the following three Rubrics to help Elementary, Middle and High schools learn the steps needed to become a cutting-edge STEM program, and adequately assess the progress their school is making to become a prepared or targeted quality STEM program.
Let us know what you think are the hallmarks of quality STEM programs, and how your school measures success.
