Compendium of Academic Standards

The Compendium of Academic Standards was developed by McREL in the 1990s. Funding for the project ended in in approximately 2015, and the Compendium’s contents, links, and other resources have not been updated since 2016.
Due to the age of the materials and their underlying database and servers, the Compendium was taken offline in 2024. We have posted some historical information below, for archival and reference purposes.

Compendium Resources

  • Compendium Purpose, History & Process. A PDF archive of the history and development of the Compendium, including references and contributors.

  • Lesson Plans. A PDF archive of the subject-area lesson plans and related resources from the Compendium.

  • Standards. A PDF archive of the Content Standards from the Compendium is currently in development.
