This document provides criteria which are designed to be used by school administrators, professional staff, and community representatives to assess mathematics programs and to provide a basis for establishing goals in teaching mathematics. Other possible uses for the information generated by the criteria include: validation of exemplary programs and promising practices; self appraisal (by building, district, or community level); development of long-range goals; planning for staff development, inservice and training activities; and disseminating information and improving public relations. Major areas addressed include: (1) staffing; (2) leadership; (3) professional development; (4) diagnosing and prescribing; (5) scope and sequence; (6) resources; (7) programs; and (8) program evaluation. A rating for each criterion is obtained by using a "yes or no" response or by using a 5-item rating scale (not started, started/little progress, some progress, almost achieved, achieved). A district profile matrix is also provided. (JN)
