Standards Reference by Authority


Have you ever wondered why some states have more than one publication? What standards is my state in the process of revising? Does my state have Financial Literacy standards? Or maybe you are a long time Academic Benchmarks customer and you miss the “Common Corner”.

Early in January Academic Benchmarks will be introducing Standards Reference by Authority pages in the Instructure Community. These pages will aim to give you all the publication titles and documents that are currently active within a state. They will tell you which documents we know are expected to be revised in the next year, list relationships among documents, and give you additional key information about that state’s standards.

If you haven’t already visited the AB Blog you might want to check it out. Watch the blog for the announcement of these pages being released.
