The ELA review rubrics identify the criteria and indicators for high quality instructional materials. The rubrics support a sequential review process that reflect the importance of alignment to the standards then consider other high-quality attributes of curriculum as recommended by educators.
For ELA, our rubrics evaluate materials based on:
- Text Quality and Complexity, and Alignment to Standards with Tasks Grounded in Evidence
- Building Knowledge with Texts, Vocabulary, and Tasks
- Instructional Supports and Usability
The ELA Evidence Guides complement the rubrics by elaborating details for each indicator including the purpose of the indicator, information on how to collect evidence, guiding questions and discussion prompts, and scoring criteria.
