Instructional Materials Development: The Instructional Materials Development (IMD) program includes four components: Learning Progressions -- supports the creation of instructional frameworks centered on learning progressions in science and technology education and the development of associated teacher resources and models for professional development. Instructional Materials for Students -- supports the creation and substantial revision of comprehensive curricula and supplemental instructional materials that are research-based; enhance classroom instruction, preK-12; and reflect standards for science, mathematics, and technology education developed by national professional organizations. Assessment -- supports the creation of tools for assessing student learning that are tied to nationally developed standards and reflect the most current thinking on how students learn mathematics and science.Projects can also focus on developing resources that provide technical assistance to schools and districts in implementing new assessments. Applied Research -- supports the research for development of the IMD program and projects; provides evidence for the effectiveness of materials and feedback for strengthening the portfolio; and identifies possible new directions in instructional materials and assessment. Proposals may be submitted for projects in any field of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) education typically supported by NSF.
