Student Assignments and Standards

I hope that some of you can point me in the right direction.  I am looking for a protocol that matches student work to the demands of the standards.  It is an analysis to determine if the assignment is aligned to the standard, and then examines how students performed on that work.  Lastly, it provides a way to improve and enhance the lesson plus the student work.  I am aware of the one used in Standards-in-Action.  It is the third innovation called Focus On Assignments: Working Together To Improve Teaching And Learning.  I know that other procedures exist.  Where can I reference them?  Is anyone using such a method?

Thanks,

Meryl

Hi to all,

In an email message, I received the suggestion that I may want to refer to an ASCD 2012 publication titled Assignments Matter: Making the Connections That Help Students Meet Standards by Eleanor Dougherty.  I have ordered it, and I understand a study guide is available too.  Is anyone familiar with this book?
