Why are standards so important, and how do they improve student learning? In The Authentic Standards-Based Environment: A Systematic Approach to Learning Targets, Assessment, and Data, Eileen Depka dives into standards-based student learning with a simple, easy-to-use approach to unpacking standards, developing learning targets, and designing rubrics and assessments. Using data-driven methods and clear examples, this book makes a standards-based process manageable.

K–12 teachers and administrators will:
  • Learn to unpack standards and understand the components and expectations rooted in them
  • Understand how to design standards-based learning targets that directly connect to each component of the standard
  • Design individual and common assessments that link with the rigor and expectations of the standard
  • Report data and design a scope and sequence that will guide next steps
  • Discover how to implement a standards-based system school- or districtwide
