Basic Grade-Level Program (Kindergarten through Grade Eight)
Three Program Types
Standards Maps must be completed by the publisher/manufacturer for all instructional materials submitted for the 2007 Mathematics Primary Adoption, kindergarten through grade eight. Separate standards maps are available for each of the three types of programs to be considered for 2007 adoption:
- Basic Grade-Level Program (Kindergarten through Grade Eight)
- Intervention Program (Grades Four Through Seven)
- Algebra Readiness Program (Grade Eight)
Standards Maps will be used to document the extent to which your instructional materials meet Category 1: Mathematics Content/ Alignment with Standards. The mapping of the standards requires thorough knowledge and accurate notations of the standards as they are presented in your instructional program(s).
Regardless of the type of program, submissions that fail to meet all of Criteria Category 1, the Mathematics Content/Alignment with Standards, will not be considered satisfactory for adoption. For Criteria Categories 2-5, each submission must have strengths in each category (Program Organization, Assessment, Universal Access, and Instructional Planning and Support) to be worthy of adoption.
Highlights of the Standards
The Standards Maps for this adoption are based on the Mathematics Content Standards for California Public Schools adopted by the State Board of Education in 1997. The mathematics content standards for kindergarten through grade seven are organized by grade level and are presented in five strands: Number Sense (NS); Algebra and Functions (AF); Measurement and Geometry (MG); Statistics, Data Analysis, and Probability (SDAP); and Mathematical Reasoning (MR). The standards for grades eight through twelve are organized differently from those for kindergarten through grade seven, because the mathematics studied in grades eight through twelve falls naturally under the discipline headings of algebra, geometry, and so forth.
The Standards Maps will enable the IMAP and CRP members to see how your program aligns to the State Board-adopted Mathematics Content Standards. Standards Maps for the three program types that will be part of the 2007 Mathematics Adoption display the required mathematics content standards in different ways.
Basic Grade-level Program (kindergarten through grade eight) standards maps include all grade level standards for kindergarten through grade seven and all standards for Algebra I (for grade eight programs). Programs must address all standards at the relevant grade level (Kindergarten through grade seven) and discipline (Algebra I for grade eight). If you are submitting a Basic Grade-Level program you will only need to complete the standards map(s) for the grade levels that are pertinent to your submitted program(s).
Instructions For Completing Standards Maps
- Fill in the header for each grade-level map with the publisher's name, the program's title, list of components (and abbreviations used, such as, PE for pupil edition), and grade level(s) of the program.
- The first two columns have been completed with the required information:
- Column one contains the content standard number.
- Column two contains the text of each grade-level Mathematics Content Standard.
- Columns three and four (Publisher Citations) are reserved for publishers to use to identify citations (both primary and supporting) for each standard. In these spaces, please provide information to help the Content Review Panelists (CRPs) and the Instructional Materials Advisory Panelists (IMAPs) determine the extent to which each of the standards is covered in the program. Citations for the standards in the Mathematics Reasoning (MR) strand must also indicate the relevant content standards from the NS, AF, MG, and/or SDAP strands to indicate where in the program the MR standards are embedded in the teaching of the standards from the other four content strands (an example of a citation for Grade One, MR 2.2: ((Gr. 1, NS 1.1) PE, p. 60). Accurate and succinct responses are appreciated.
- Primary Citations: These are the places in the program where a specific standard is taught in-depth.
- Supporting Citations: These are places in the program where a specific standard is also taught, but it is not the primary emphasis of instruction.
All standards in each grade level must be addressed.
- Leave columns five, six, and seven blank. These columns are provided for IMAP/CRP members to use as they evaluate whether the program is "meeting" (Y-yes) or "not meeting" (N-no) the standards. The last column is provided for IMAP/CRP note taking. Recommendations for (Y) or against (N) a program are based on how completely and explicitly the standards are addressed. IMAP and CRP members will be guided by the following definitions:
- Meets the Standard: This is column five, the “Y” column. The standard is addressed completely and explicitly, providing substantial material for teaching and learning.
- Does Not Meet the Standard: This is column six, the “N” column. The standard is not addressed, or the program reflects little or no alignment with the standard. There is insufficient material for teaching and learning the standard.
- IMAP/CRP Notes: This is for the individual reviewers to make notations to assist them in their deliberations.
- Publishers should use the “appendix” section at the end of each grade-level Standards Map to provide additional comments regarding their citations on coverage of specific standards, if it is necessary. Please footnote with a number, such as 1, 2, 3, etc. in the citation box. Keep the actual citations simple and reference the page number and/or the span of pages.
Additional information about completing and submitting the standards maps for this adoption will be included in the Publishers Invitation to Submit 2007 Mathematics Primary Adoption document to be distributed at the Invitation to Submit meeting scheduled for January 9, 2007.
