Alabama Science Course of Study: Assessment Correlation.
Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery.
This document is designed to show the connection between the required state-written curriculum (courses of study) and the state-tested curriculum (the Alabama High School Graduation Examination and the Stanford Achievement Test, Ninth Edition [Stanford 9]) in Science. The document illustrates that courses of study content standards embody both Alabama High School Graduation Examination and Stanford 9 objectives, demonstrating that local education agencies may feel confident developing local curriculum based on one document: the state course of study. Each page of this document contains four columns. The first is the course of study content standards, and the second places the Alabama High School Graduation Exam objectives, with eligible content, beside the related content standard. The third column contains an "X" for the Stanford 9 correlation to the course of study, indicating that one or more components of the content standard is tested on the Stanford 9. The fourth column is designed for local use; a system may choose to list instructional strategies or resources here. The standards are given for kindergarten through grade 8, and for Physical Science, Biology Core, Chemistry Core, and Physics Core. (SLD)
