Learning List, an independent reviewer of K-12 Math and English Language Arts instructional materials, has released a review of TenMarks Math, finding that the entire curriculum for grades 1-8 and Geometry is 100% aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the curriculum for Algebra and Integrated Math is 95-97% aligned.
“The TenMarks goal is to provide teachers with the highest quality content to support all math students,” shares Meera Vaidyanathan, Head of Curriculum Products. “Learning List’s recent review confirms that our rigorous math resources are over 99% aligned to the new standards.”
Learning List employs a three-part, rigorous evaluation process when reviewing instructional materials. The first part, the publisher questionnaire, consists of 12 questions that are commonly asked in school district request for proposals. The second part, the educator survey, is sent out to at least seven customers who have used the product. Educators are also asked to complete a telephone interview about the product. Finally, the third part, the correlation document, consists of three to five “citations,” or pieces of content, for each standard at each grade level, which is reviewed by subject matter experts. Upon completion of the review process, the Learning List team found that TenMarks Math meets the content, context, and cognitive demand of every CCSS standard for grades 1-8 and Geometry and more than 95% for Algebra.
