If you use the same standards in multiple courses – even across multiple schools – you can compare standard performance across your courses and/or schools. To do this, make sure that the standards in each course are all named identically, both in terms of their code and their description. Even an extra space in one standard will cause the system to consider it different from otherwise-identical standards.
When standards have identical codes and descriptions, you can use the Analysis page to break out how students are performing on these standards across different courses and schools. Learn about creating standards here, and copying them to other courses here.
