SLP: Why Can’t I Find an Alignment Document?
Most course offerings are associated with a standards alignment document within the Course Syllabus that describes which specific academic content standards are addressed by the instructional content, learning activities, and/or assessments in various units or lessons within a course. There are a handful of reasons, however, why some offerings may lack an alignment document. This document lists those reasons.
- The course offering is for a grade level or age group for which subject-specific academic standards do not apply (e.g., postsecondary, college courses offered for dual enrollment).
- The offering is not for an academic course, and is not intended to generate academic credit on a student’s school transcript (e.g., an online summer camp or an online supplemental program intended to provide additional practice or remediation).
