OER Materials Review Overview
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.
The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction is developing a review process that acts as a model for districts considering the adoption of OER. The initial review, conducted by OSPI, will examine open resources in Algebra/Integrated Pathway Secondary Mathematics 1 and units in 11th - 12th grade English Language Arts intended for use in public schools.
