Albert content is aligned to learning standards that are taken directly from the curriculum guides such as Common Core State Standards, CollegeBoard, Next Generation Science Standards, NYS Next Generation Learning Standards, Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills etc. You can find questions aligned to learning standards using our standards search tool, which can be accessed from any subject guide by clicking on the Standards drop down menu near the top of the guide.
Searching for a known standard
In the Standards drop down, you can search for standards by name (e.g. RA R.1), category (e.g. Common Core), or description. When you type in characters that match one of our standards, the drop down will populate with matching standards.
From here, you can select the standards that you want to filter to. When you select a standard via checkbox, that standard will appear in a list below the search matches. You can add as many standards as you want to this list. When you're browsing for standards, it might help to toggle the descriptions on by clicking the Descriptions button to the right of the search bar.
Searching for similar questions from a question
You can also search for Standards (and Tags) within a specific question. To see the Standards and Tags assigned to a question, click on the "Reveal Solution" button at the bottom of the question and scroll to the bottom of the page again, beyond the Background and Distracting Choices.
These Standards and Tags are clickable and will filter the questions in the subject to only those that also correspond to that Standard or Tag respectively.
All Albert searches are based on exact matches. The means that the broader your search term, the more likely you are to find results. For example, if you search for the label "HS-LS1-1," you will find only results with that specific label. If, however, you search just "HS-LS," you will see results for "HS-LS1-1" and "HS-LS3-1."
