AERO Standards and MAP test 2013-2014
Standards Vs Curriculum • Standards are expectations. For instance, we expect students to know that 2+2=4, and why. Curriculum is the program created by school to teach students to learn that 2+2 =4, and why. • Standards are statements. Curriculum includes many resources: activities, lessons, units, assessments, and can include publisher textbooks. • Standards deﬁne what is to be learned by the end of a school year. Curriculum is the detailed plan for day to day teaching. • Standards are the end. Curriculum is the means. Saint George has a Curriculum.

AERO Vision American-sponsored overseas schools will know how standards-based education can and should strengthen a school’s curriculum, teaching, assessment, and, most importantly, student learning. These schools will develop and sustain a program of standards-based learning in their schools.
Mission • Provide challenging, professionally-validated, voluntary academic standards for use as a foundation for curriculum in Americansponsored schools overseas • Assist overseas schools to develop their own K-12 curricula that are grounded in standards • Train teachers to use the AERO standards as the basis for assessing their students’ progress and their own instruction • Assist schools in developing standards-based curricula and sustaining curricula by becoming professional communities of learners.
About AERO AERO is a project supported by the U.S. State Department’s Office of Overseas Schools (A/OPR/OS) and the Overseas Schools Advisory Council to assist schools in developing and implementing standards-based curricula. Project faculty use the AERO standards as the basis of the professional development they provide. AERO provides a framework for curriculum consistency across grades K-12 and for stability of curriculum in overseas schools, which typically have a high rate of teacher turnover. AERO’s resources, workshops, and professional consultation services help overseas schools implement and sustain standards-based curricula. This effort is in alignment with research-based trends in the development of curriculum worldwide, and particularly with the Common Core initiative in the U.S.
What is Project AERO? American Education Reaches Out (AERO), began as a project to adapt the U. S. national standards in Mathematics, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies to serve the needs of multi-national student bodies. Over the years, standards have also been developed in Music, Visual Arts and World Languages. In addition, three other components have been added: AERO:SAW, which provides a focus on standards-based assessment, AERO:SBC, which is a collection of week-long summer institutes on curriculum design, and OSAC-funded AERO mini-workshops, which are one to two-day introductions to the principles taught more deeply in the summer institutes.
AERO and IB Schools Schools with IB programs use the AERO Standards in various ways. Some expect students to meet the standards by the end of grade 10 and then use the IB as the basis for the curriculum for the last two years of high school. Another choice is to maintain the AERO Standards through grade 12 for students not enrolled in the full IB program. In schools that follow the Primary Years Program and/ or Middle Years Program, AERO provides a clear, measurable set of expectations for content knowledge and skills that integrate with the curriculum design criteria for PYP and MYP.

MAP: MEASURES OF ACADEMIC PROGRESS Created by educators for educators, MAP assessments provide detailed, actionable data about where each child is on their unique learning path. Because student engagement is essential to any testing experience, NWEA works with educators to create test items that interest children and help to capture detail about what they know and what they’re ready to learn. It’s information teachers can use in the classroom to help every child, every day. Adapting the Test to the Student MAP dynamically adapts to a student’s responses – as they take the test. • Answer a question correctly and the test presents a more challenging item • Miss a question, and MAP offers a simpler item In this way, the test narrows in on a student’s learning level, engaging them with content that allows them to succeed. Available Assessments Delivered over the web or through your local network, MAP is a complete set of assessments aligned to national and state curricula and standards: • MAP: Reading, mathematics and language • MAP for Primary Grades: Reading and mathematics • Science Assessment: General science
