These documents present cluster specifications for use with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). There are specifications for each of the grades 3 to 5 NGSS Performance Expectations that will be included in the Elementary Science Assessment, administered in grade 5; for each of the grades 6 to 8 NGSS Performance Expectations that will be included in the Middle School Science Assessment, administered in grade 8; and for the NGSS Performance Expectations that will be included in the Biology End of Course Exam, beginning in Spring 2020.

The item cluster specifications are designed to guide the work of item writers and the review of item clusters by stakeholders. They can also be helpful to teachers as they implement the NGSS and prepare students for the upcoming NGSS assessments.
