Mathematics Grade-Level Instructional Materials Evaluation Tool-Quality Review (GIMET-QR)
This evaluation tool offers a way to assess existing grade-level curriculum for alignment with the Common Core State Standards in mathematics, both in terms of content and instructional design. Reviewers are provided with an extensive rubric, the first and largest section of which analyzes several clusters of grade-level content standards (those that are part of the progression to algebra). Subsequent sections consider whether the materials contain an appropriate balance of conceptual understanding, application, and procedural fluency. The tool (a separate version of which exists for each grade, K-8) is designed to be used after the entire publisher series has been vetted using the Instructional Materials Evaluation Toolkit (IMET), designed by Student Achievement Partners.
