The Consumer Guide is published in combination with the State Multiple List. The ISBN located in the upper left hand corner of each listing is a link to the reviews from the review team.
In accordance with KRS 156.405
, the State Textbook Commission approves a State Multiple List for each of the six adoption groups in Kentucky’s six-year adoption schedule. The State Multiple List recommends basal* instructional resources in accordance with KRS 156.445
, (*Basal instructional resources are those that serve as the primary means of instruction for a grade level or course for the adoption group under consideration. Basal instructional resources must encompass the standards and expectations for student learning described in the Kentucky Program of Studies and Core Content for Assessment.)
Publishers submitting bids for the Science State Multiple List were required to identify the TYPE of each basal bid (P1, P2, E1 or E2), selecting from one of four categories.
Print (P1 and P2) Basal Resources
Print resources (P1 and P2) are those for which the principal component used directly by the student is in print format.
Electronic (E1 and E2) Basal Resources
Electronic resources are those for which the principal component used directly by the student is in electronic or digital format.
Essential Components of P2 and E2 Basal Resources
A resource is identified as a type P2 or E2 resource because it has “essential components” that are identified as supporting the major student edition/version, and the components are included in the single ISBN and the Kentucky contract price for the interrelated set of items. We use the term “program” as a label for such an interrelated set of items, but terms such as “complete set” or “grade level set” or “comprehensive package” are commonly used by publishers to mean the same. Essential components will be identified for each basal in the Science Consumer Guide that will be posted at this same web location in mid-November 2007.
