  • “EQuIP (Educators Evaluating the Quality of Instructional Products) is designed to identify high-quality materials aligned to the Common Core State Standards.

    The objectives are two-fold:

    Increase the supply of high quality lessons and units aligned to the CSSS that are available to elementary, middle, and high school teachers; and
    Build the capacity of educators to evaluate and improve the quality of instructional materials for use in their classrooms and schools.

    The EQuIP rubrics are designed to evaluate:

    Lessons that include instructional activities and assessments aligned to the CCSS that may extend over a few class periods or days
    Units that include integrated and focused lessons aligned to the CCSS that extend over a longer period of time
    The rubrics do not require a specific template for lesson or unit design”

  • Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (DOK) provides a vocabulary and a frame of reference when thinking about our students and how they engage with the content. DOK offers a common language to understand “rigor,” or cognitive demand, in assessments, as well as curricular units, lessons, and tasks. Webb developed four DOK levels that grow in cognitive complexity and provide educators a lens on creating more cognitively engaging and challenging tasks.
