This study was designed in response to a request from rural educators in the Northeast for support in identifying high-quality online resources to implement the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM). The process for identifying online resources included selecting resources that had an easily navigable CCSSM organizational structure and explicit references to the CCSSM content and/or practice standards. The process for evaluating quality involved math content experts applying the Educators Evaluating the Quality of Instructional Products (EQuIP) rubric to the selected online resources. A total of 184 online resources were initially screened, with 59 meeting all three of these criteria. Among these 59 resources, 19 were determined to be exemplary according EQuIP: 13 of the 19 were classified as instructional resources and 6 of the 19 were classified as resources to support teachers' understanding of the CCSSM. Results indicate variability in the quality of available resources designed to support instruction and understanding of the CCSSM. Educators should determine which types high-quality online resources are most highly aligned to their specific needs. Appended are: (1) Data and Methodology; and (2) Educators Evaluating the Quality of Instructional Products (EQuIP). Rubric.
