High Quality Instructional Materials Review Resources
(HQIM) is defined as materials that are aligned with the Mississippi College- and Career-Readiness Standards, externally validated, comprehensive, and include engaging texts (books, multimedia, etc.), problems, and assessments. These resources can be used to analyze a resource as being a HQIM.
- Mississippi Instructional Materials Matter NEW (a centralized location for Mississippi math and social studies teachers to review high-quality, standards-aligned materials that have been evaluated and adopted by other Mississippi teachers and school districts.)
- EdReports (free reviews of K-12 instructional materials focus on alignment to college and career-ready standards and other indicators of high quality as recommended by educators across the country.)
- High Quality Instructional Materials Rubric and Evidence Guides NEW
Instructional Math Videos from SchoolKit and Illustrative Mathematics NEW (SchoolKit, in partnership with Illustrative Mathematics, have scripted and filmed 24 instructional videos for Grades 6-8 , and Algebra I.)
The following resources provide sample assessment items and testing guidelines to support the teaching and mastery of MS CCRS for Mathematics in preparation for the MAAP Assessment.
