Report of a Survey of State Mathematics Supervisors: What Influence Has NCTM's "Curriculum Focal Points" Had on State-Level Specification of Learning Goals?
Center for the Study of Mathematics Curriculum
An e-mail survey was conducted in the summer of 2007 to obtain information from state supervisors of mathematics (employees of state departments of education with primary responsibility for K-12 curriculum leadership) regarding the impact of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) 2006 publication, "Curriculum Focal Points (CFP) for Prekindergarten through Grade 8 Mathematics." The survey sought information on the use and impact of CFP on current or future editions of state-level K-8 mathematics learning goals (commonly referred to as grade-level learning expectations or GLEs). Forty-three of 52 state representatives (including DoE and DoDEA) responded to the survey (83% response rate). A list of states that responded is included in this report. All but two of the 43 respondents indicated familiarity with CFP. In fact, 33 respondents indicated they are "very familiar" with the document and eight indicated they are "somewhat familiar" with the document. Appended are: (1) Survey; and (2) States whose representatives responded to survey. (Contains 2 tables.)
