Welcome to the Blueprints Online Survey. The goal of this site is to stimulate further discussion of important education reform issues raised in Project 2061's Blueprints for Reform: Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education.

The results of the survey reflect the up-to-date rankings provided by all repondents. In addition to choosing a response, you may comment in writing.

To take part, complete the survey by responding to the questions. As background, you may want to read selected chapters in Blueprints for Reform (available in print from Oxford University Press or online). The survey will take you less than 5 minutes to finish.

Blueprints for Reform examines 12 crucial areas of the education system that must work together and change to bring about needed reforms in science and mathematics education. These 12 areas are grouped in the following categories: The Foundation; The School Context; and The Support Structure. This survey will help us determine the most crucial areas to focus on. Future surveys will explore these top priority areas.

 
1. Rank the four Foundation areas from 1 (highest) to 4 (lowest) according to their impact on the current and future success of reform:
   1234
      Equity
      Policy
      Finance (funding for schools)
      Research (how students learn; instructional practices)

2. Rank the four School Context areas from 1 (highest) to 4 (lowest) according to their impact on the current and future success of reform:
   1234
      School Organization (governance, class size, schedules)
      Curriculum Connections (among and between disciplines)
      Materials and Technology (textbooks, computers, media)
      Assessment (national, state, local, classroom)
