Colorado Academic Standards
The 2020 Colorado Academic Standards were revised to reflect a new vision for science education that connects scientific knowledge, in authentic ways, to real-world problem solving and innovation. The standards forefront scientific practices that use and go beyond the inquiry process to arrive at reasoned and justifiable rationales for interpretations of real-world phenomena and events. The standards are framed around A Framework for K-12 Science Education.
