Many campuses have an improvement plan, also known as a Campus Improvement Plan, which strives to improve many aspects on their campus, but mostly their standardized test scores. Utilizing the six realms of meaning, symbolics, empirics, esthetics, synnoetics, ethics, and synoptics, schools can better prepare their students on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills. 11
