Analyzing Instructional Content and Practices

author: Rolf Blank, Stan Hill
description: This paper offers useful information on using the Surveys of Enacted Curriculum for advancing alignment and improving science instruction.

"The evaluation and improvement of curriculum in science requires reliable, comparable data on the degree of consistency versus variation in science subject content taught and classroom practices used. A new quantitative method for analyzing science instructional content and practices is available to assist schools and teachers by providing rich, in-depth data for making decisions on improving curriculum and instruction."
