What is a Curriculum Map?

Curriculum maps (also referred to as CMAPS or CMaps) identify the learning standards for a course. Administrators and teachers with access to curriculum maps can organize a curriculum map with units, uploaded documents, pinned resources, and sub-standards. They can also create a copy of a curriculum map and create a tracker from a curriculum map. Teachers can use the map-based trackers to measure student growth and performance throughout a course based on the curriculum map content.

Each curriculum map has a privacy level associated with it. Admins can also create district-approved curriculum maps, which have special restrictions.

Learn more about creating curriculum maps in Maps or in Trackers.

Curriculum Map Content

Curriculum Map Content

Curriculum maps display core learning standards grouped by subject strand or in units [1]. Each standard may also have associated sub-standards and assessments [2].

Linked Trackers

Linked Trackers

When you create a tracker from a curriculum map, the tracker is automatically populated with the map's standards and any units, sub-standards, and assessments.

If the map changes, you can apply updates from the map to your linked trackers. You can also sync changes from the tracker to the map.

Curriculum Map Management

District-Approved Curriculum Maps

District-Approved Curriculum Maps

If you are an admin, you can create district-approved curriculum maps. District-approved maps cannot be copied by other users, preventing unapproved edits and confusion among copied versions. However, users can print district-approved maps or create trackers from them.
