STEP TWO - ORIENTATION to REVISIONS

After downloading drafts of the standards, please view the the NCCAS professional development module that introduces you to the revised organizational structure of the standards (Framework Matrix) and gives some background information, thereby providing a context for reviewing the work.

Several structural changes have been made between the last review (September, 2013) and the current draft based on reviewer feedback. Even if you have reviewed prior modules, we recommend you participate in the current module to get up to speed on the changes that have been made.
