The Washington state legislature found that the recent adoption of Common Core standards provided an opportunity for the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction to identify a library of current, high-quality, openly licensed courseware that could be accessed by K-12 school districts statewide.
The question of quality is one of the overriding issues in the OER field. To address that issue, Washington state has developed a process for evaluating Common Core-aligned OER materials. In April 2013, groups of math and ELA educators convened to review OER materials in Algebra 1 and select ELA units. Results of this review as well as all the review tools are available to share as districts consider utilizing open resources. This session will cover the rubrics, process, and outcomes used in the evaluation process.
