Indicator 4

There is clear alignment between the written and taught curriculum.

What to Look For:

  • a school will be able to describe the structures in place which ensures that the written curriculum is taught, e.g., curriculum coordinators supervise teachers and provide assistance to new teachers
  • assessment that are referenced in curriculum documents would be used regularly by all teachers teaching the same course
  • common assessments for a course would be used and regularly re viewed to pinpoint gaps in the curriculum
  • a visitor to the school who has the opportunity to visit a number of sections of the same course over a reasonable period of time would observe the curriculum being taught in each course as the same curriculum described in the curriculum documents
  • teachers of the same course would meet regularly to share ideas about delivering the curriculum
