Simba Information’s 2016 National Instructional Materials Adoption Scorecard and 2017 Outlook

Simba Information’s 2016 National Instructional Materials Adoption Scorecard and 2017 Outlook focuses on the results of instructional materials adoptions in K-12 science in four states in 2016: Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina and West Virginia.

In addition to science, the main attraction in 2016 was the opening of purchasing in the California K-8 language arts adoption heralded as path-breaking by state leaders because of the integration of English-language development into the English language arts framework, which makes language development for English-language learners a core part of the curriculum, not a separate part of the school day.

The report provides individual analysis of each of the five adoptions of instructional materials with sales broken down by publisher by grade segments. In addition, the report includes the annual publisher scorecard, a reflection of how each publisher did in the adoptions covered.

The 2016 edition of the annual report also provides a general grounding in the adoption of instructional materials with information on:
  • the PreK-12 education landscape framing the adoptions,
  • background on the instructional materials adoption process and the changes affecting that process,
  • a state-by-state calendar of adoption market opportunities in 2017, and
  • projected adoption highlights by state through 2020.
