With the release of the new Florida Sunshine State Standards in Science (2008) Florida Science Olympiad will correlate all events with these new standards. Events have been correlated to those state standards which are explicitly used, or are a required prerequisite to perform the event at a minimum level to demonstrate more in-depth learning and so that the student can achieve success in the event. Each year, approximately 50% of the events undergo a major revision or are replaced. As each event is rewritten or replaced, Science Olympiad consults the National Science Education Standards to ensure that all events are correlated at a national level. In addition, the National Science Education Standards (National Research Council, 1996) specifically sited Science Olympiad as an excellent example of how inquiry and assessment can be effectively connected to improve student learning.
