    About Our Numbering System

    The number before each standard serves as a classifcation code. The first letter designates the type of standard, the second group of letters describes the subject area, and information after a hyphen is an abbreviation for the subtopic.

    The group of numbers after the first period denotes the grade level and the number after the second period is the standard's identification number.

    Example: NA-D.K-4.1 corresponds to
