JumpRope provides you with two ways to align your learning targets with Common Core State Standards (CCSS). While you are working in the Planning Tab, you might notice at the top of your screen the words, "import learning targets". You might also notice at the bottom right, in the "Learning Target Details" the button for, "click to align".
While each of these options allows you to align with CCSS, they do so slightly differently from one another. Understanding that difference might be helpful as you plan and eventually report out to students and their families.
When you select "click to align", you first write your teacher-derived learning target and then align it with CCSS. When you "click to align", you will be redirected to the CCSS. From there, you will click through the standards to select the precise one which best matches the target you have written. Later, when you share reports, your students and their families will only see the target you wrote. You will have a record of its alignment in JumpRope and so you will be able to track which CCSS your students have mastered, but the data reported out will be in teacher-written words.
When you select "import learning targets", you will be redirected to the CCSS. From there, you will click through the standards to select the precise one which best represents the target you plan to teach and assess.
When you select this option, the standard itself is written in the space for the learning target. This is important to think about because any time you share a report, be it formally or informally, the target displayed will be the standard you selected, not your own teacher-language. If you plan to display data down to the learning target level for students and families, you might consider providing some support for them in understanding and interpreting CCSS language.
