How do I track the standards usage for a curriculum map?

This is part of our Curriculum Solution. You will not have this option if you are a free user.

Once you have added standards to your curriculum map, you may then want to view overall progress of the standards usage for your map. This article is a quick overview on how to track your standards coverage.

Note: If you haven't yet added standards to your curriculum map, click here for more information.

Step 1:

After you have selected to edit a map of your choice from the main menu, click on the Standards tab.

Step 2:

This will bring you to the Standards page. From here you will be able to see a breakdown of all the standard sets you have added to the units on this map, and for each of those standards sets, how many of those standards you have assigned and to what units and fields you have assigned them to. This is helpful when you are creating your map to ensure you are addressing all the intended standards for this subject.

The columns will display information about how many standards are in use anywhere on the curriculum map, and are broken down further by which fields they appear in.

Standards that are in use on a given field type will be noted with a filled-in box that matches the colour of the unit they appear in, whereas standards that are not in use will present a grey box for that field type. You can hover your cursor over each box to see which unit it corresponds to, as shown below.

You can use the menu on the left-hand side of the screen to filter the standard sets, units and fields you wish to view.

Note: Only field types that support associating standards will be displayed. If you wish to convert basic text or Resources fields into multi-text fields, please follow the instructions in this support article.

Step 3:

You can use the search bar at the top of the page to narrow the displayed standards by either code or keyword, and can use the drop-down menu on the right to choose between displaying "in use", "not in use", or all standards.

Clicking on a listed standard will expand the row to display the description of the standard and the names of the units it appears in.

From this view, you can click on a selectable field type within a unit to view that unit field's contents and make edits as necessary.
