Standards-based lesson plans requires a different way of planning that includes an alignment of student work expectations and classroom assessments to the standards and the learning objectives and expected outcomes of the lesson, and establishment of criteria by which it can be determined whether students have achieved the particular standard or indicator. Teachers need to learn how to align their teaching practices with the state content standards and how to develop and implement standards-based lesson plans. A rubric has been developed to evaluate teachers' standards-based lesson plans based a set of criteria for developing effective standards-based lesson plans. The rubric has been pilot tested and Kappa statistics have been calculated to evaluate the reliability of the rubric as a method to evaluate the effectiveness of standard-based lesson planning and the impact it has on student learning.
