Standards are what hold like-minded industries (education, military, corporate, or other) to the same level of accountability. Once a standard is selected, it must then be aligned to the lesson or instruction. All successful instructional settings will align instruction and assessment to the standards. For this assignment, you will discuss the purpose of standards and a learning objectives/outcomes alignment with assessments and lesson plans. You will also summarize the importance of alignment between standards, objectives, assessments within instructional plans.

“It takes less time to do a thing right than to explain why you did it wrong.”(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, as cited in Lopez, 2013)
