Teacher Survey of Standards-based Instruction: Addressing Time

author: J. Florian
description: This McREL (Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning) study estimates the time required to teach standards at four specific grade levels as it compares to the amount of time available for instruction.

"The explicit expectations offered by standards are welcomed by many educators, but a concern has been raised that the breadth of content that appears in most standards documents can be overwhelming for instruction.In response to concerns that standards may be asking teachers to cover too much material, this study examines the issue of instructional time needed to teach students all standards in for basic academic domains at four grade levels. This study also assesses ratings of appropriateness of benchmarks at the same four grade levels."
