Standards-based education is the process of teaching, learning and assessment that focuses on national, state, and local educational standards. Academic Content Standards are statements of what students are expected to know and be able to do at specified grade levels.

ODE Standards Resources

  • Standards by Design
    Content standards define what all students should know and be able to do.
  • REAL News Connection
    Most recent Oregon Department of Education newsletters and subject area resources.

  • Common Core State Standards for Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects    
    The 6-12 literacy standards for Science and Technical Subjects are not meant to replace the content standards in the sciences but rather to supplement them. The emphasis in the literacy standards is for students to learn to read and write in English Language Arts and to further develop reading and writing skills specific to science and technical subjects content.
