In 2010, more than 40 states adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) as a set of high-quality academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA). The National Research Council and Washington-based Achieve, the group that produced the Common Core English and math standards, also managed the development of Common Core science standards. It took three years for a group of committees to develop Common Core Science Standards, which are called "Next Generation Science Standards" (NGSS).
