Which standards does Gooru support?
Today, resources in our system are aligned to the following frameworks:
- Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
- Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts
- Next Generation Science Standards
- California State Standards
- Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) Standards
- College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards
How are standards represented in Gooru?
Each standard is represented by a display code in Gooru (standardsDisplay). Display codes are generated using internal algorithms and are unique to Gooru. They are generally shortened versions of the codes found on the original framework website. If no code is available on the original website, then we generate a code which closely matches the original structure of the framework.
Do display codes vary by standard framework?
Yes, the codes vary depending on the standard framework. Some example standard display codes are:
|Framework||Example Display Code|
|Common Core Math||6.EE.7|
|Common Core ELA||RL.K.1|
|Next Generation Science Standards||5-LS2-1|
|C3 Framework for Social Studies||D1.1.K-2|
|Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)||TEKS.M.A1.8|
My system uses Common Core dot notation. Is there a way to find out the corresponding Gooru display codes?
Yes. The mapping between the Common Core dot notation and the Gooru display codes can be found in this file.
My system uses another standards provider. Is there a way to find out the corresponding Gooru display codes?
Available options will depend on the provider used (Academic Benchmarks, Achievement Standards Network, etc.). Please contact us at [email protected] for more information on supporting standards from various providers.
How often does Gooru make updates to standards?
We check the original frameworks websites periodically for updates to existing standards and update our data accordingly. New standards frameworks are added based on the needs of our partners and users. In general, any major updates to standards are scheduled on a bi-annual basis.
