National Standards Illustrations

A collection of illustrations has been developed to support teachers in using the National Standards.  Choose a year level from the image above to see a list of available illustrations for that year level.  

Each illustration includes:

  • a page describing the task that was used to generate the work samples
  • a collection of two or more work samples, each illustrating work at a particular standard and annotated to indicate features that are representative of that standard.

The tasks available with illustrations can be accessed from the year level links above or from the table below.
