The research tools consisted of a questionnaire, an interview form, and an assessment form. The statistics used in data analysis were mean, standard deviation, content analysis, and PNImodified. The research revealed that:
1. The greatest needs for developing primary school curriculum based on the concept of collaborative evaluation and STEM education goals is the development of curriculum by collecting information from all stakeholders on the integration of knowledge in solving daily problems. (PNImodified = .111)
2. Good practices for developing primary school curriculum based on the concept of collaborative evaluation and STEM Education Goals consist of 4 guidelines consisted of Real-world integration curriculum designing, Interdisciplinary curriculum designing, Technology integration curriculum designing, and Student proficiency-based curriculum designing.
3. The curriculum development innovation of primary school based on the concept of collaborative evaluation and STEM education goals consist of Curriculum goals, Curriculum principles, Students’ key competencies, and Curriculum development flow chart.
