The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) report (Mullis and Jenkins, 1988) states that "science exerts a pervasive influence on the quality of the lives of all citizens, and that it is essential that all productive citizens be able to understand and resolve the increasing number of societal problems related to science and technology." Our national position as a world leader is dependent upon such knowledge and skills. In Iowa, a state striving to improve its national and world economic status, these NAEP analyses are critical.
