Summary

This guide describes a process that can be used or adapted by school districts to evaluate standards and guide practitioners in developing locally appropriate benchmarks. The guide is not a training manual that provides a step-by-step guide for undertaking this effort with a group of educators; instead, it suggests an approach and rationale for a review of standards and addresses techniques that might be used when part of the process is adapted for group work at the district level. A content standard is a summary description regarding what it is that students should know and be able to do within a particular discipline. A benchmark is a clear, specific description of knowledge or skill students should acquire by a particular point in their schooling. Performance standards specify how good is "good enough." The guide discusses all of these ways of measuring performance in the following chapters: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Definition of Terms"; (3) "Review Purpose and Criteria"; (4) "Reference and Comparison Documents"; (5) "Who Will Do the Work?"; (6) "Standards and Benchmark Analysis"; (7) "Grade Placement of Content"; (8) "Coverage of Content"; and (9) "The Larger View." (Contains 58 references.) (SLD)
