The content match of two elementary mathematics curricula (Distar Arithmetic and Scott Foresman Mathematics) and two arithmetic tests (KeyMath and the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills) was examined for Grades I through 3. Correspondence was assessed for content (material and operation) as well as the types of learning that were required of the student (i.e., knowledge, computation, comprehension, application). Eighty-one of the 90 comparisons were significant at the.001 level. Thus, a consistent lack of content correspondence was found among curricula and tests at all levels.
