1. To provide a structure from which standards-based district, school, and classroom curriculum can be developed, organized, implemented, and assessed.

2. To provide the basis for the development of a state, local, and classroom comprehensive assessment system.

3. To make explicit what may be included in statewide assessments of student learning.

1. To provide more specific and detailed benchmarks for Vermont's Framework of Standards and Learning Opportunities.
