Academic standards define what students should know and be able to do in an area of study.  In Wisconsin, all state standards serve as a model. Locally elected school boards adopt academic standards in each subject area to best serve their local community. 

This survey is part of a review and revision process in which all Wisconsin academic standards regularly engage. Your responses will be shared with the Standards Review Council, who may recommend revision to the State Superintendent. If the State Superintendent determines revisions are necessary, your responses will be further shared with a writing committee.

Additional considerations:
Please complete this survey only once.
We will only consider feedback from Wisconsin residents.
The survey closes on 2/28/20

The current Wisconsin Standards for Mathematics are available here.

Question Title

* 9. How much do you value Wisconsin having academic standards for mathematics that are identical or similar to other states? Rate your response from 1 (not at all important) to 4 (very important).

Question Title

* 10. Indicate the importance of maintaining the following design principles of the Wisconsin Standards for Mathematics. Rate your response from  1 (not at all important) to  4 (very important).

  1 = not at all important 2 3 4 = very important
Focus: Standards identify a focus on fewer topics.
Coherence: Standards relate to one another in and across grades.
Rigor: Standards pursue conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application with equal intensity.
Structure:  Standards have a hierarchy of Domains or Conceptual Categories along with a summary statement of related individual standards (Clusters)
Note that questions 11-14 each deal with a different grade band (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, HS).
