The Mid-continent Regional Educational Laboratory (McREL), with funding from the Office of Educational Research and Improvement, undertook a project to address needs for school reform support that were identified as common among states in its region. In order to assist in a strategy for leveraging limited resources, McREL proposed to identify standards systematically to make them more accessible to states, districts, and local schools. From the inception of the project, it was clear that standards were described and articulated quite differently among the subject-area groups. Analysis of documents from the various groups has afforded the opportunity to propose or clarify distinctions that may be useful in identifying standards. Part of the process has been to recognize and point out the practical, and apparently unanticipated, consequences of some approaches that have been taken to identify content standards and benchmarks. Some considerations schools or districts may want to take into account are highlighted. To date, over 35 documents have been analyzed, and the project has produced a database of 338 standards and over 4,400 benchmarks. Appendix A lists standards and benchmarks, and Appendix B is a bibliography of 35 works cited in the project's database. (Contains 33 references, and 4 figures.) (Author/SLD)
