Our recommended indicators provide a framework for Congress and relevant federal agencies to create and implement a national-level monitoring and reporting system with the capability to: • assess progress toward key improvements recommended in the 2011 National Research Council report Successful K-12 STEM Education; • measure student knowledge, interest, and participation in the STEM disciplines and STEM related activities; • track financial, human capital, and material investments in K-12 STEM education at the fed eral, state, and local levels; • provide information about the capabilities of the STEM-education workforce, including teach ers and principals; and • facilitate strategic planning for federal investments in STEM education and workforce develop ment, when used with labor force projections. All 14 indicators are intended to form the core of this system.
