Instructional Materials Evaluation Toolkit (IMET) – Math
This tool is designed to evaluate comprehensive math curricula (including supplemental materials) for grades K-12 to determine alignment with the Common Core State Standards in mathematics. The IMET can be used as a guide both in vetting existing curricula and in developing new programs. Two versions exist – one for K-8 and one for high schools – both of which consider non-negotiable alignment criteria, alignment criteria, and indicators of quality. The tool is broad in scope: it considers an entire package of curriculum. Review with this tool could be complemented by a more fine-grained, grade-by-grade alignment analysis, like that supported by the Mathematics Grade-Level Instructional Materials Evaluation Tool (developed by the Council of the Great City Schools).
