Academic standards establish what K-12 students need to know and be able to do. Related to standards discussions are their development, implementation, and assessment as well as their relationship to critical thinking and learner-centered outcomes. The role that standards play in encouraging best practice in the teaching of Primary Education, English, Arabic and Islamic Studies, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Science, Reading, and Instructional Technology must be examined.
