K-12 Education Content Standards

Medium

North Dakota Content Standards serve as a model to develop goals for teaching and learning and as expectations for what students should know and be able to do for each grade span. Each school district may set more rigorous standards; however, no district shall use any state content standards less rigorous than those set forth in the North Dakota Century Code 15.1-21.

Local school districts determine the curriculum (how standards are taught) they will adopt to meet the standards.

To access a machine-readable version of the official North Dakota Content Standards, please visit the North Dakota CASE Server.  The CASE version of the standards can be uploaded to student information systems, curriculum mapping programs, and a variety of other uses.

To access the priority standards and proficiency scales developed by the North Dakota Regional Education Association, please visit NDREA.org

The North Dakota Department of Career and Technical Education (NDCTE) also has content standards to assist in preparing students for entry into industry sectors for post-secondary education. The NDCTE develops these standards to ensure each program area offers courses that allow students to acquire essential knowledge and skills.

NDDPI Seeks Public Comment on First Draft of the English Language Arts Content Standards

The NDDPI is seeking feedback on the first draft of the revised North Dakota English Language Arts Content Standards.

Content Standards are concise, written descriptions outlining the knowledge and skills students are expected to know and do at a specific stage of their education. They illustrate what students have learned upon completing a grade level or grade span. The academic standards do not describe particular teaching practices, curricula, or assessment methods.

The North Dakota Standards for English Language Arts were last revised in 2017. Over the past three months, a committee of North Dakota educators has been diligently working on rewriting the standards

The NDDPI asks that all interested stakeholders provide feedback on the draft standards through the survey linked below.

Contact the Office of Academic Support for more information about the standards public comment process.
