The CPALMS standards progression maps are visual representations of the flow of concepts and skills contained in educational standards. These maps show how standards relate to each other. During the summer of 2012, CPALMS brought together math teachers, curriculum specialists, and higher education faculty from across Florida to use the iCPALMS Standards Unpacking Tool to unpack the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Using the FCR-STEM method for unpacking standards, K-8 grade band and high school conceptual category teams identified the most closely related standards to each standard being unpacked. By the end of the week, more than 3,400 connections were identified among the 385 math content standards. These initial connections subsequently served as the raw data for creating standards progression maps.

In a separate summer 2012 workshop, a subset of the mathematics unpacking team and a group of ELA teachers and curriculum specialists convened to validate mathematics connections identified during unpacking and create standards progression maps for both CCSS mathematics and English language arts standards. Using the iCPALMS Standards Progression Mapping Tool, the CCSS Mathematics and CCSS ELA mapping teams created 29 maps. In addition to the maps, the iCPALMS Standards Progression Mapping App was released with the release of iCPALMS. The following are examples of the maps released in September 2012:

How were these maps created?

During the summer of 2012, over 30 math teachers, curriculum specialists, and higher education faculty from across Florida were brought together to use the iCPALMS Standards Unpacking Tool to unpack the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Using the FCR-STEM method for unpacking standards, K-8 grade band and high school conceptual category teams identified the most closely related standards to each standard being unpacked. By the end of the week, over 3400 connections were identified among the 385 math content standards.


These initial connections subsequently served as the raw data for creating standards progression maps. In a separate summer 2012 workshop, a subset of the mathematics unpacking team and a group of ELA teachers and curriculum specialists convened to validate mathematics connections identified during unpacking and create standards progression maps for both CCSS Mathematics and CCSS ELA standards. Using the iCPALMS Standards Progression Mapping tool, the CCSS Mathematics and CCSS ELA mapping teams created visual box-and-arrow representations of the progressive and directional relationships between and among standards. Additional maps were produced at CPALMS to show the built-in progressive framework of the CCSS ELA standards.


This total effort produced 29 standards progression maps including K-8 grade level maps and conceptual categories for CCSS Mathematics as well as a variety of cross-cutting themes in CCSS ELA.
