Helpful Terms and Definitions:

Academic Content Standards describe the knowledge and skills that students should attain - often called the "what" of "what students should know and be able to do." They indicate the ways of thinking, working, communicating, reasoning and investigating, and important and enduring ideas, concepts, issues, dilemmas and knowledge essential to the discipline.

Benchmarks are the specific components of the knowledge and skills identified by an Academic Content Standard. The benchmarks serve as checkpoints of cumulative knowledge and skills over a band of grades.

Grade-level indicators are statements of what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. The indicators are the checkpoints that monitor progress toward the benchmarks.
