Mathematics Textbook Reviews (2011)

Posted: Tue, 09/27/2011 - 12:07pm Updated: Fri, 02/22/2013 - 2:55pm

The overall format and structure for mathematics rubrics was adopted from the Instruction Materials Analysis and Selection process developed by the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin. Reviewers were selected by way of an application process, which required that they meet the qualifications of a Highly Qualified Teacher. All reviewers were assigned into grade bands and trained in the use of the rubrics and other review process support documents.

Reviewer Recommendations

In January 2011, the appointed reviewers met to discuss their individual reviews and reach consensus on a total score for each textbook or set of instructional materials. As part of the effort to better inform and assist school corporations in making purchasing decisions that best fit local needs and student success, the total score sheets and comments for all materials reviewed are made publicly available.
