For the past five years, Inverness Research Associates has been the evaluator of the New York Statewide Systemic Initiative (NYSSI), a five-year, ten million dollar investment of the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the improvement of mathematics, science and technology (MST) education in New York State. As part of that evaluation, Inverness Research undertook what might be called an "MST landscape study" in which our researchers attempted to assess the current status of MST instruction across the state. Visiting seven typical districts, we were able to see a large sample of MST instruction, and ultimately we were able to rate the quality of a total of 156 math, science and technology lessons across grade levels (K-12).
