SUMMARY

Webb, N. L. (1997). Criteria for alignment of expectations and assessments in mathematics and science education (NISE Research Monograph No. 6). Madison: University of Wisconsin–Madison, National Institute for Science Education. Washington, DC: Council of Chief State School Officers. 

This report examines the advantages of aligning state standards in an effort to examine systemic and standards-based education reforms in mathematics and science.  Twelve criteria for evaluating alignment are grouped into five categories including content focus, articulation across grades and ages, equality and fairness, pedagogical implications, and system applicability.
