State Science Assessment Survey

"State science tests differ greatly in what they expect students to know about evolution, with some asking no questions about the theory and others including more than a dozen items related to it," reports Sean Cavanagh in Education Week.

Responses from more than 20 states to a survey on high school science assessments show that the vast majority of those states include at least one question that specifically refers to the term "evolution." Just three responding states: Alabama, Ohio, and South Dakota, indicated that their exams offered no questions using that word.

No states surveyed by Education Week said their high school science assessments include questions about intelligent design.
