Curriculum and Instruction

Quality Review Rubrics

ESE uses rubrics in the Model Curriculum unit development and review process. Units are reviewed by national and local content experts using the Quality Review Rubrics. One comprehensive rubric was developed for each content area to help educators determine the quality, rigor, and alignment of lessons and units to the MA Curriculum Frameworks. The History Social Science (HSS) Quality Review Rubric and the Science, Engineering, and Technology (STE) Quality Review Rubrics were developed by content experts here at ESE. Mathematics and English Language Arts Quality Review Rubrics were developed as part of the Tri-State Collaborative (the Education Departments of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York), working with Achieve, Inc.
