LDC is a Curriculum Alignment System
Quality you can count on and measure. With LDC, measure what matters most: the assignments students and teachers use every day.
Use the SCALE/LDC Curriculum Alignment Rubric (CAR) to create a shared system of quality indicators that help teachers, schools, and systems align curriculum, instruction, and assessment, as well as ensure that every task put in front of students is standards-driven, engaging, and leads to improved outcomes.
Start small and think big. The SCALE/LDC Curriculum Alignment Rubric lays out the features of a quality assignment or performance task. Teachers select this vetted, validated, and field-tested rubric as their preferred way to assess student work and impact on student growth, and to evaluate results in student work.
This rubric allows a school system to norm definitions of quality across classrooms—across town and nationwide.
LDC is supported by an LDC Academic Advisory Board of national experts and the LDC National Faculty, a team of highly calibrated practitioners from around the country with deep disciplinary expertise and a track record of providing actionable feedback.

Quality in the LDC Platform
Quality curriculum makes a difference. LDC believes that quality is part of the daily work in a school, not just a periodic event. Use LDC CoreTools to integrate formative and summative rubric reviews into curriculum development, professional learning workflows, and credentialing. Curriculum vetting through nationally calibrated double-blind peer review ensures generations of students have the opportunity to access high-quality, rigorous curriculum.
