Washington State Institute for Public Policy
January 2007
The study legislation also directed the Institute to “identify possible barriers to student success or possible causes of the lack of success” on the Washington Assessment of Student Learning (WASL).

Curriculum alignment, defined as the congruence among instructional materials, practices, and assessments, is a necessary ingredient of student success on the WASL. Without alignment, students face a potential barrier. Therefore, the Institute is investigating ways to analyze the extent to which curricula, instruction, and assessments are aligned.

This report summarizes the history of efforts to align the curriculum in Washington and presents results from a data analysis of reading and mathematics textbooks in Washington.
