Albert's content is aligned to learning standards that are taken directly from the curriculum guides such as Common Core State Standards, College Board, 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. Additionally, you can reveal the solution to questions to see the standards alignment below the detailed explanation.
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 on the descriptions by clicking the Descriptions button to the right of the search bar.

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."
