This document is intended to show the relationship between Ohio's Standards and Competencies, Equipped for the Future's (EFF's) Standards and Components of Performance, and Ohio's Revised Benchmarks. The document is divided into three parts, with Part 1 covering mathematics instruction, Part 2 covering reading instruction, and Part 3 covering writing. Each part is divided into six sections devoted to the following instructional levels: (1) beginning literacy; (2) beginning adult basic and literacy education (ABLE); (3) low intermediate ABLE; (4) high intermediate ABLE; (5) low adult secondary education; and (6) high adult secondary education. The mathematics competencies covered range from recognizing numbers and numerals to applying numbers in consumer settings, solving simple word problems, using common mathematical documents, measuring, estimating, demonstrating complex mathematics skills, and applying knowledge of mathematical concepts to understanding and computing using mathematical information. Selected reading competencies covered are as follows: using word recognition skills to decode, pronounce, and comprehend the meaning of familiar words and new words introduced through instruction; demonstrating skill in varying reading rate for specific purposes; and reading and interpreting complex documents. The writing competencies covered range from demonstrating basic eye-hand coordination to composing appropriate written documents and using writing as a tool for professional or personal communication.
