Associating the correct standards with your technology-enhanced questions is a central part of the Edulastic app.
Below is a quick tutorial on how to change or add standards associated to your questions during the authoring process:
1. In my Essay Type question I have asked students to discuss how point of view is utilized in Tobias Wolff's story "Bullet in the Brain." Initially I picked CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.11-12.6 when creating my question. But since I want students to cite the text to support their ideas and claims I also need to associate CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.11-12.1 with the question.
Start by opening the "Standards Alignment" menu at the bottom right.
2. Now you can see the current associated standards—and the option to "Edit standards for this question." Click this option to move forward.
3. You have two methods for finding new standards:
- Use the search function if you know the explicit abbreviated ID (i.e. grade, domain, and standard number).
- Scroll through the domains and standards in each strand.
Once you've found the new standard you'd like to add simply check it off to associate it with the question. To remove standards you uncheck them. Click "Associate" when you're done.
4. This is your view after you have associated your changes. You can click "Edit standards for this question" again to continue making changes.
5. After closing the "Standards Alignment" menu you'll see the updated changes (it now displays three).
