We HELP the people who work in education find the LEARNING POINT FASTER, more often and for more students.

Learning Point Associates Services:
Standards and Assessment
We work with schools and districts to increase standards and provide high-quality assessments to all students.
Curriculum Alignment Services
Research suggests that the impact of a well-aligned curriculum can “cancel out” more traditional indicators of student achievement, such as socioeconomic status, gender, race, and teacher effect. A well-aligned curriculum can help level the playing field for students.
Learning Point Associates works with each district to customize the curriculum audit approach. We have designed three processes (basic alignment services, knowledge domain alignment, and comprehensive alignment) that allow us to effectively analyze a district’s written curriculum, instructional guides, and assessments to determine the level of alignment to state standards.
Surveys of Enacted Curriculum
The Surveys of Enacted Curriculum (SEC) is a powerful tool that allows administrators to analyze, measure, and refine what is taught in the classroom. Designed for K–12 teachers, the SEC provides a process for measuring:
- What is being taught to students
- How it is being taught
- What students are expected to know and be able to do with the lessons
The SEC maps responses from an online survey about what teachers say they teach to the state content standards and assessments. Analyses are presented across grade levels and schools to identify gaps and duplications in curriculum and instruction that may affect student performance.
