2017 National Instructional Materials Adoption Scorecard and 2018 Outlook

Simba Information’s 2017 National Instructional Materials Adoption Scorecard and 2018 Outlook provides a singular look at sales by subject in particular states—those states classified as adoption states, which conduct statewide reviews and purchasing processes for instructional materials.

The 2017 report focuses on K-12 social studies adoptions, most notably in Florida and North Carolina, and on the second-year sales of language arts in California. Results from individual districts in several other states also are included.

The report provides individual analysis of each of the adoptions 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 2017 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 adoption process and the changes affecting that process,
  • a state-by-state calendar of adoption market opportunities in 2018-2021, and
  • projected adoption highlights in 2018.
