Students observing fishPlease note that although Rhode Island has adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts (ELA) and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, & Technical Subjects ("Literacy in the Content Areas"), and the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics, the Common Core State Standards do not cover science content and therefore do not replace the Rhode Island Science GSEs. 

The Science GSEs and the Science NECAP assessment will continue to be in effect.
