Standards Searching

You can search for standards by name (e.g., RA R.1), category (e.g., CCSS), or description in the Standards drop down. When you type in text that matches one of our standards, the drop-down will populate with appropriate standards. 

From here, you can select the standards you want to find questions for. Check the box next to the desired standards and then click Apply. It might be helpful to toggle on the descriptions by clicking Descriptions to the right of the search bar.

Tag Searching

Albert's questions are tagged based on the content areas they cover. A complete list of subject tags can be found in your subject's Overview sub-tab.

To search for a tag, click the Tags drop-down within the subject and enter the search bar's content area you're searching for. The drop-down will populate with tags that match your search. Click on the desired tags to search for questions.

Question Text Searching

To start a question text search, click on the search bar on the righthand side of the subject guide and type your search term. This will filter the questions to only those containing the search term in the title, prompt, answer options, or solution explanation.

[Pro-tip]: You can combine these search methods to narrow your search further.

Searching from a Question Solution

You can also search for Standards and Tags within a specific question. After answering a question, scroll to the bottom of the question solution to view the associated Standards and Tags.

These Standards and Tags are clickable and will filter the questions in the subject guide to only the aligned questions.

Note: All Albert searches are based on exact matches. The broader your search term, the more likely you will find results. For example, if you search for the tag "place-value-relationships," you will find only results with that specific title. If instead, you search the keyword "relationships," you will see both the "place-value-relationships" and "proportional-relationship" tags as results.

Multiple Search Terms

You can also filter your search further by utilizing several search methods simultaneously. The questions below result from a standard search for 4.MD.4 and a tag search for 'line-plots' and include only the questions where both of those searches apply.
