The National Science Foundation (NSF) has partnered with NAAEE to develop a comprehensive, research-based framework for assessing environmental literacy. The Framework for Assessing Environmental Literacy provides a foundation for measuring the extent to which we are enabling all learners to acquire the knowledge, skills, dispositions, and behaviors vital for competently making decisions about local, regional, national and global issues.

NAAEE is excited and proud to commit to this investment in partnership with the National Science Foundation, and hopes that the Framework will be used in the development of other large-scale assessments of environmental literacy in the future.

The NSF is a U.S. Federal agency supporting research and education in many fields of science and engineering.
