In 2007 we reviewed Washington’s mathematics standards, using a 4-point rubric for nine different attributes including content match, rigor, grade-to-grade coherence and measurability. We compared Washington’s standards to widely respected state and international documents. Our report explained not only that they needed to be stronger, but offered specific recommendations for doing so.
After the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction drafted new mathematics standards, we had the privilege of revising and polishing the standards one final time.
We include selected reports and deliverables from this project.
