Designed exclusively for publishers, SMART(Standards Mapping and Assessment Resource Tool) is a series of web-enabled, interactive databases that navigate the universe of state standards and relate them to one another. SMART represents a powerful productivity tool for research, planning, and the development of standards-based curricula, assessments, and correlations.

SMART has the following potential applications:

  • Streamline product development efforts to address the standards of many states at once, reducing product customization costs and time frame.
  • Simplify gap analysis when deciding which curriculum assets to leverage for multiple markets.
  • Guide the development of assessment items to ensure the widest, most cost-efficient state coverage in the least amount of time.
  • Illustrate the relationships between existing print and electronic assets to guide decision making for developing relationships between and among products.
  • Correlate products, pre- and post-development, to a variety of state standards simultaneously to minimize cost and time investments.
  • Reduce time spent researching the standards and assessments for multiple states in multiple subject areas and grade levels.
