As a part of the legislative mandate to identify and develop a library of openly licensed courseware aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction in Washington conducted a review of OER in Spring 2013. Full course secondary mathematics (Algebra 1/Integrated Math 1) and 11th - 12th grade English Language Arts units with an emphasis on American Literature were reviewed. The review process made use of existing review instruments designed to gauge alignment with the CCSS. The results from this review will be an extremely valuable tool as educators and content developers tap into the most powerful feature of OER – the ability to freely adapt and redistribute materials.
