Illinois Learning Standards. First Edition.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
The Illinois Learning Standards are required learning targets for Illinois students and schools. This guidebook includes the Illinois State Goals for Learning in seven learning areas (as updated from the 1985 Learning Goals), Learning Standards for each of the State Goals, and Learning Benchmarks that define progress at five developmental levels for each standard. The seven learning areas include English language arts, mathematics, science, social science, physical development and health, fine arts, and foreign languages (advisory standards). The guidebook also describes the historical and philosophical background of standards-based education and the standards-development process in Illinois. Appendices contain a glossary, a chart that compares the 1985 State Goals with the 1997 Learning Standards, and a list of participants in the standards-development process. (Contains 131 references.)
