Instructional Materials Reviews

What began as a launch of 87 grade-level reviews of K-8 math materials in 2015 now includes more than 1,000 reviews of K-12 math, English language arts, foundational skills, and science programs. EdReports reviews traditional textbooks, digital materials, open education resources, supplemental foundational skills materials, and interim assessments.

Our curriculum reports focus on the presence of the standards, how well the standards are sequenced, the depth with which standards are included, and other important characteristics of high-quality instructional materials. No other review process provides as much detail about how materials meet or do not meet the criteria, including specific examples from the programs.

Through this growing database of evidence-rich reviews, we empower districts to insist upon aligned materials and be able to choose the materials that best address local needs and priorities.

Reviews in Action

School districts representing more than 15 million students have been documented using EdReports to make decisions about instructional materials, including 98 of the nation’s largest 200 districts.
