Curriculum Quality Rubric: A Self-Assessment Tools for Districts

Curriculum Rubric

The rubric is aligned to the content and structure of the Supporting Excellence framework, allowing districts to individually assess the extent to which their curriculum reflects the seven key features of an effective curriculum outlined in the framework document. It provides detailed descriptions of what it looks like, in practice, to have a curriculum that requires substantial revision, one that is minimally effective, and one that is effective in each of these categories. Moreover, a fourth rating—ideal—should provide districts with a direction for ongoing improvement and progress. We encourage districts to be honest about where their curriculum falls short and to use this tool to engage in a process of self-assessment that is both candid and constructive.
