Matrix Templates for Course Alignment


Becoming a Teacher or School Leader button Educator Licensure button Educator Support and Development button Educator Workforce Resources and Data

The matrix templates for course alignment reflect the educator competencies, which describe what an educator should know and be able to do in a particular licensure area.  These matrices may be used when submitting revisions or new program proposals.

Complete the curriculum matrix by inserting course prefixes and numbers in the top horizontal row. Next, add a check mark in the vertical row that corresponds with the competency the course is covering. See an example (XLXS).
