Curriculum standards in the United States are typically established by state education agencies and, in some cases, by the federal government. The primary purpose of these standards is to provide a framework for what students should learn in K-12 education, including specific content, skills, and knowledge that students are expected to acquire at each grade level.
It’s important to note that education standards are periodically updated and revised. Curriculum standards are often accompanied by standardized testing to assess student performance in relation to these standards. These tests, such as the SAT, ACT, and state-specific assessments, are used to gauge student achievement and school performance. The specific standards and testing requirements may have evolved since my last knowledge update, so it’s important to consult the most recent information from your state’s education agency or the U.S. Department of Education for the latest details on curriculum standards.
