Alaska Standards: Content and Performance Standards for Alaska Students.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau.
This revised edition of the Alaska standards booklet has expanded on the earlier content standards to add standards for employability, cultural responsiveness, performance, and library/information literacy. The State of Alaska has called on school districts to adopt the state standards, and the state will assess how well students meet the performance standards in reading, writing, and mathematics in grades 3, 6, and 8. High school students will need to pass the High School Graduation Qualifying Examination to earn a high school diploma beginning in 2002. The content standards are listed for these areas: (1) English/language arts; (2) mathematics; (3) science; (4) geography; (5) government and citizenship; (6) history; (7) skills for a healthy life; (8) the arts; (9) world languages; (10) technology; (11) employability; and (12) library and information literacy. The cultural standards outline the cultural awareness and respect for cultural differences required of Alaska's students. Performance standards are specified for reading, writing, and mathematics.
