Curriculum Auditing Tool
The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) recognizes that teachers are currently using robust, research-based best practices in science lessons and units throughout the year. Updated science standards have created the need to audit current practices and determine what next steps are needed to align to the three-dimensional instructional approach for Indiana’s new science standards. IDOE has developed this curriculum auditing tool to allow teachers to examine their current science lessons and units to determine if or how they already align with newly adopted science standards.
The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) recognizes that success of new science standards implementation lies with educators. This survey was designed as a reflection tool to gauge teachers’ knowledge of science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, crosscutting concepts, and three-dimensional learning. These concepts are critical aspects of Indiana’s updated science standards, and this survey should be used as a guide to determine teacher readiness for implementation.
