4 The first two processes occurred during Review Week. After the Review Week, top scoring programs were reviewed by a small group for conceptual development quality. They created a narrative evaluation. Content (Standards and Coherence) Key Program Elements Conceptual Development
Content Standards Coherence Key Elements Student Learning Facilitating Instruction Equity and Access Assessment 5 See page 23-24 of report document.
69 reviewers reviewed 85 individual products (program-grade range) from 20 publishing houses 402 individual readings Over 29,000 data elements collected Each product received 4-5 independent readings Each reading completed in an average of 6 hours 7

Broad range of supplement types Compares supplemental with gaps in core No ranking of supplemental materials 19
Are we required to use one of the recommended texts? Is there any money available to purchase new materials? We have a science text that is not on the recommendations list. What should we do? The results from this review are different than LASERs accepted materials list. Can you explain the differences? 20
