What are Education Standards?

A standard in education is a measure of a norm that is used in comparative evaluations. Standards are written for various school curricula. This sets the plan for the instruction that will take place in a course. It is up to the school, administration and teacher to implement these standards in their teaching methods.

Benchmarks are points along the way to completing a full standard. Students may take tests in school that are called benchmarks or assessments. This helps to evaluate the academic progress of a student.

Standardized testing is found in most of the schools in grades 3-12. A standardized test is one that is given and scored in a predetermined manner. There are two kinds of standardized tests. One is an aptitude test which will predict how likely the student will perform. The other is an achievement test. This test shows what the student knows by evaluating their skills such as reading comprehension.

It is important to follow a student’s progress through the testing. Sometimes parents are confused by the data and information presented. If you need help with this issue, please contact Beth Silver. You can reach her at: bethcarolsilver@gmail.com or 310-720-0390.
