2018 National Instructional Materials Adoption Scorecard and 2019 Outlook

Simba Information’s 2018 National Instructional Materials Adoption Scorecard and 2019 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 2018 report focuses on K-12 science adoptions, most notably in Florida and Tennessee, and on social studies adoption in California. Also included are sales results in what turned out to be an off-year in the adoption cycle.

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 2018 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—including the attraction of OER—affecting that process,
  • a state-by-state calendar of adoption market opportunities in 2019-2022.
