Directions For Use

Exemplars alignments can be searched for in two ways.

Search by Standards

This search option allows a user to search for Exemplars material that is aligned with a particular standard, grade level and subject area. This search option is organized by standards, benchmarks and grade level expectations.

  1. Under the "Standards Search" option make the following selections:
    • Standards – Select a “state,” “province,” “math series” or “specific standard” like Common Core.
    • Grade - Select a "grade" from the drop-down menu.
    • Subject - Select a "subject" from the drop-down menu.
    • Click on the "Search" Button.
  2. After clicking on the "Search" button, the next screen will show a variation of the Standard, Benchmark and Grade Level Expectation (GLE) for the particular subject area and grade level you selected. The description of each standard is located in the far right-hand column. Scroll through to find the specific Standard and GLE you are searching for. (Note: the layout and terminology for each state varies to reflect how each state organizes its individual standards.)
  3. After locating the specific Standard and GLE you are looking for, in the far right-hand column you will see blue text that says "materials correlated to this standard." Click on this link and it will take you to a list of Exemplars products that have material aligned to the particular standard you selected.*
  4. Select the Exemplars product(s) you have a site license for by clicking of the respective link. The resulting screen will indicate which Exemplars tasks are aligned with the standard/GLE you selected.

Search by Product

This search option is organized by Exemplars products and enables you to determine which state alignments are correlated with your existing Exemplars library. It allows a user to search for Exemplars tasks by name to find the corresponding standards.*
