David Tyler asks, “How SHOULD the NSF measure scientific literacy?”

At Access Research Network (7/22/11). And offers an answer:
For 20 years, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has undertaken surveys of science literacy that incorporate these two true-false statements: “Human beings, as we know them today, developed from earlier species of animals”, and “The universe began with a huge explosion”. Happily, changes have been recommended, but not all have welcomed their suggested replacement wording. The critics say that the revised statements are “surrendering ground to religion”. I will suggest below that both the engineers of change and their critics have something to learn about science surveys.
