How do I search effectively?

All sets uploaded by Chalk are formatted as follows:

(state/province/common core)  -  grade #  -  subject 

For example, if you're looking for the National Math Common Core standards for grade 2, you should search:

"National Common Core - Grade 2 - Mathematics"

When adding standards from your web browser, you can use filters below the search bar to help narrow your search by country, region, subject or grade level.

Subject and grade filters will not be available until you select a country and region. You can type in the filters to find options more easily.

Once you've set the desired filters, you will see results for all of the available standards that match the filters and search terms entered.

These filters will be remembered the next time you browse for standards. If you teach a particular subject or grade level, setting your filters can save you time for when you need to add standards to other classes.

If you're having difficulty finding standards, try editing your search terms or clearing your filters.

Official vs. non-official standards

Standards uploaded by Chalk are marked official as they're pulled directly from the source document. 

Individual teachers can also share standards that they have created within their own accounts. Some standards may have the same title as official standards, but the teachers who created these are free to customize them as they see fit.

You can view community-created standards by changing the Type filter below the search bar.

You can also access the standards you've created in your account through the Type filter by selecting "My Standards". Click here to learn how to upload your own standards.
