Standards Gap Report
A Standards Gap Report lists all of the standards in a given state document, with alignments to assets showing on the left side of the screen
The gaps in columns A and B in the report above indicate standards that are not aligned. There is an alignment in the 95th row (in blue). The Standards Gap Report lists every level of the state document, so there will be instances where a gap in column A and B does not indicate a legitimate gap in coverage. In the example above, the rows in red (90 and 94) represent higher levels in the document and should have no alignments. Colors have been added by the author to better illustrate the information.

"Show hierarchy of each standard (one column per level)" - Check this if you want to show the hierarchy for each standard. This option generates one column for each level in the hierarchy of the reported standard. If the standard is in the fourth level of the document, there will be four columns, one for each level. See example below.
If you select the check box, the window expands to request additional information.
"Only show standards at deepest level" creates the report so that only standards at the deepest level in the standards document, with one row per standard. The hierarchy of the standards is not included in the report.
"Only show gaps" creates the report so that only standards at the deepest level in the standards document and only those that have no assets aligned. The report shows only the gaps, with no alignments in the report. If columns A and B of the report are empty, it is because there are no assets aligned to the standards in that row.
