In close collaboration with local educators, AIR has led the development and implementation of standards and assessments in grades 1 through 11. As a result of this effort:
- Honduras now has national content standards for Spanish language, mathematics, science, and social studies;
- teachers have guides to pace classroom instruction according to the standards; and
- standards-based formative assessments as well as summative tests are in place to measure student learning at the end of each grade.
Research studies on best teaching practices based on the results of the summative achievement tests now are disseminated nationally.
