AB 899 Correspondence Study Report
Guiding Questions

Correspondence Study Report Narrative

  1. Is each section of the report narrative clear and complete? If not, what needs to be clarified or included?
    1. Background and Project Overview
    2. Qualifications of Staff Conducting the Correspondence Study
    3. Correspondence Study Protocols
    4. Summary of Correspondence
      1. California Standards for Mathematics (CA SM)
      2. California Next Generation Science Standards (CA NGSS)

Correspondence Study Report Appendices

Mathematics and ELD
  1. Does the organization of the tables clearly present the correspondence analysis of the Standards for Mathematical Practices and the CA ELD Standards?
  2. Are there any language demands in the CA SM that are NOT represented in the CA ELD Standards?

    The above questions pertain to the following sections:
    1. Appendix A: Standards for Mathematical Practice
    2. Appendix C: Correspondence between CA ELD Standards and CA SM
Science and ELD
  1. Does the organization of the tables clearly present the correspondence analysis of the Science and Engineering Practices, the CA NGSS Performance Expectations, and the CA ELD Standards?
  2. Are there any language demands in the CA NGSS that are NOT represented in the CA ELD Standards?

    The above questions pertain to the following sections:
    1. Appendix B: Science and Engineering Practices in the NGSS
    2. Appendix D: Correspondence between CA ELD Standards and CA NGSS

Appendix E: Sample Augmentation Documents

Mathematics (pp. E-2 through E-7)
  1. Which elements of the sample are most useful for the purpose of showing how the CA ELD Standards can be augmented to fully address the range and rigor of the language demands in the CA SM?
    1. Applying ELD Standards to Math column
    2. Math Practices column
    3. Sample Math Content Examples column

  2. What organization of the information would be most useful, given that the augmentation document might be included as an addendum to other state documents (e.g., the CA ELD Standards, the CA Mathematics Framework, or the CA ELA/ELD Framework)?

  3. Which combination of grade levels would be most useful to teachers?
    1. K-5, 6-12
    2. K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12
    3. Each grade level
Science (pp. E-8 through E-20)
  1. Which elements of the sample are most useful for the purpose of showing how the CA ELD Standards can be augmented to fully address the range and rigor of the language demands in the CA NGSS?
    1. Applying ELD Standards to Science description
    2. Sample Science Content Example
    3. Science and Engineering Practices
    4. Science and Engineering Performance Expectations

  2. What organization of the information would be most useful, given that the augmentation document might be included as an addendum to other state documents (e.g., the CA ELD Standards, the CA Science Framework, or the CA ELA/ELD Framework)?

  3. Which combination of grade levels would be most useful to teachers?
    1. K-5, 6-12
    2. K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12
    3. Each grade level
