Standards Structure

Content Standards are listed at the top of the list and are the general statements of what students need to know and be able to do.
Topics are listed below the standards and further clarify a specific area of the standard.
Student competencies, listed below the topics, are the specific learning expectations for students.. 

Calculation Method for Standards

Standards are larger groups of related student competencies. So the Standard Score is a calculation of all the related student competencies. So click on the student competices identifers  name below each Standard to access the learning targets and proficiency scales for each Disciplinary Core Idea's related Performance Expectations.
