Benchmark Search

This utility is designed to help PUMAS Participants find labels that identify the Curriculum Topics of Examples.

Based on United States national content guidelines, the entire subject matter of K-12 mathematics and science has been divided into broad curriculum areas, called Science and Math "Standards." Under each Standard are numerous "Benchmarks," which are specific curriculum topic statements, arranged by Grade Groups.

Each PUMAS example is tagged with one or more Benchmarks, which are referred to by their Benchmark Labels.

If you already know the labels of one or more Benchmarks, and want to read the Benchmark statements, click here.

The labels used here refer to "Standards" and "Benchmarks" provided by the Mid-continent Regional Educational Laboratory (McREL). They are used here by permission. Bolding of words in the standards and benchmarks was added by R. Kahn, PUMAS Editor.

To Use this Utility:

You will receive a list of Benchmarks and their associated labels.

Make a note of the labels of those Benchmarks that most closely describe the Curriculum Topic(s) of interest.

NOTE: If you do not choose specific Benchmarks you will receive a list of ALL the Benchmarks.
