Kansas Guide to Learning:
Reasoning and Quantitative Literacy

July 2012 – July 2013

The Kansas State Department of Education in conjunction with many math leaders across the state recently completed work on the Kansas Guide to Learning: Reasoning and Quantitative Literacy project. The primary focus of this project was creating rubrics aimed at evaluating whether instructional and professional development resources are aligned with the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Mathematics as well as instructional shifts necessary in their implementation and training. The final project contains two rubrics with both an extended and quick version of each. The Kansas Mathematics Professional Development Review Tool provides a lens for educators to use when both creating and evaluating the many professional development resources available. Likewise, the Kansas Mathematics Instructional Review Tool is a rubric for educators to utilize when both creating and evaluating the many instructional resources available.
