The majority of course offerings in the Student Learning Portal (SLP) are accompanied by a standards alignment document in the Course Syllabus. This document details the specific academic content standards that the instructional content, learning activities, and/or assessments within the course cover. However, there are some cases where an alignment document may not be available. The following list explains the reasons for this.
- The course offering is for a grade level or age group for which subject-specific academic standards do not apply (e.g., postsecondary, college courses offered for dual enrollment).
- The course addresses unique subject matter for which there are no associated standards in the Michigan Academic Standards, nor are there any nationally recognized set of academic standards for this course material (e.g., some unique career interest electives).
- The offering is not for an academic course, and is not intended to generate academic credit on a student’s school transcript (e.g., an online summer camp or an online supplemental program intended to provide additional practice or remediation).
- The course is a brand new offering, and the alignment document will be coming soon after the course development has been completed. In such cases, you will be sent to a unique Course Alignment Document page stating, “The alignment document for this course is still under development; please check back soon to view it when it becomes available.”
