Alignment Tools assist in alignment of State Content Standards with school district curriculum, units and lessons, and classroom instruction.
These are practical methods for collecting, reporting, and using information about content taught in Oregon classrooms. Methods for measuring and reporting on alignment can allow stakeholders to observe where classroom instruction, district curriculum and academic content standards intersect and where they do not.
