map of the united states with some states colored, blue, some gray, and some purple.

DCMP members can browse and search for videos based on state and national educational standards. DCMP uses EdGate Correlation Services to ensure that state K-12 standards are kept accurate and up-to-date. Standards include:

  • Common Core
  • State Standards
  • Next Generation Science Standards
  • National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies
  • K-12 ASL Content Standards

This section details how to browse for DCMP videos based on state and national standards. Several thousand titles have state standards data available, and more are being added.

While the standards are kept accurate and up-to-date, our interface for this feature is currently in beta mode as we seek feedback from teachers. Please help us refine our delivery methods of this service to better suit your needs. As you browse, you'll run across a feedback button which we encourage you to use to help us improve this service.

State standards information appears in each video's Media Details, and will default to the state in which your DCMP account is registered. In this example, How the Earth Was Made: Sahara meets 32 standards for South Carolina, and meets 744 state standards in total.
