Research on how students learn science best informed the writing of the Framework for K-12 Science Education in 2011, which in turn led to the development of new science standards, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in 2013.  Rhode Island was the first to adopt these new standards which are the hallmark of the vision for science teaching and learning in the state.
