OER Review: Report
Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license. These resources may be used free of charge, distributed without restriction, and modified without permission. As a part of OSPI's legislative mandate to identify and develop a library of openly licensed courseware aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), OSPI conducted a review of OERs covering Algebra 1/Integrated 1 and 11th grade English Language Arts.
