TEA defines high-quality materials as those that ensure full coverage of Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), align with research-based instructional strategies in each subject area, support all learners, and include:
- Progress monitoring through embedded, aligned assessments
- Implementation support
- All teacher- and student-facing resources needed for instruction
Texas Resource Review provides detailed, independent quality reviews of many instructional materials to help districts make informed decisions.
