Looking for NGSS - DCI spreadsheet

Has anyone created or found a spreadsheet version of the DCIs only (not PEs)? I have a pdf, but it is proving impossible to get it into an editable G.sheets format to distribute to my fellow teachers. Before I launch into creating on my own, I thought I would see if anyone else has done this and would be willing to share the document. If you have seen it created and available somewhere, please point me to this resource. Thank you in advance.

For various work I am doing, I have put together a google doc that contains all of he performance expectations as well as all of the elements (the individual bullet points) that appear in the foundation boxes and appendices of the NGSS.  There is a tab for each of the different types of statements, including the Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs)


In addition, I have developed a human-readable coding scheme for each of the elements to make it easier to reference a particular element. Otherwise, people often have to use the first several words or even the whole text of the statement.


You can find the document at the following link:


I hope this helps.
