This page contains the standards in two different document formats: PDF and Rich Text (RTF). The descriptions detail each type of document to help you decide which type most closely fits your needs.
The PDF file is most convenient to use when you are simply reading the document on your computer or printing the pages. This document type including the format, pagination and graphics corresponds directly to the print documents which were mailed to the schools. In order to open and view the PDF files you will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. One other note, unless you have Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer, you will not be able to edit or copy the document. If you need to download the reader, click here.
Academic Content Standards (PDF)- Adopted by State Board of Education 12-11-01
This version of the Academic Content Standards document appears as separate files for each particular section of the document. These files may be used in conjunction with a variety of word-processing applications including but not limited to Microsoft Word, Note Pad, WordPad, etc. These files are provided for those who wish to cut/paste or edit the content for their own documents/uses such as lesson plans or curriculum documents. As noted above the content is exactly the same as the PDF file. There may be some differences in formatting and pagination depending on the word-processing application being used. In addition some graphics have been omitted in order to limit the size of the document and thus the amount of memory required to open the files.
Individual Sections of the Mathematics Standards Document
Benchmarks and Indicators by Standards (RTF/Microsoft Word Document)
Benchmarks and Indicators by Grade-Level (RTF/Microsoft Word Document)
The XML files and corresponding DTD are provided for those who are planning to or already have an educational management system in place. The information in these files is intended to be used by information technology professionals. As such XML files are not suitable for viewing, copying/pasting or printing.
Contained within each of these files are the standards, benchmarks and indicators in an aligned order for that particular content area. Each element contained within the XML file has been “tagged” with a system of unique character strings commonly referred to as the Ohio Standard Identifier Code (OSIC). The corresponding OSIC document contained within the XML folder details how the OSIC is made up of up to eight string character sections that describe a path from general (content area) to specific (indicator).
