Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC.; Wisconsin Center for Education Research, Madison.
The Surveys of Enacted Curriculum (SEC) are designed to provide reliable, comparable data that are collected from teachers and students at the K-12 math and science classroom level. The data analysis and reporting tools are intended to assist teachers, administrators, and policymakers with planning for instructional improvement in several ways: (1) align curriculum with standards and system-wide assessments; (2) monitor indicators of instruction and the relationship to student achievement; (3) analyze differences in instruction and content across schools and classes and identify improvement strategies through school leadership teams; and (4) evaluate the effects of initiatives such as professional development in changing math and science practices.
