# Standards

**Rmedia's Products are Aligned to the Standards **

We’ve made it easier for you to find appropriate materials for your classroom. Our innovative products & inclusive approach ensures that all students' needs are met. Our products are identified by four different classifications: CCSS, Grade, Interest, & Reading.

Look for the "CCSS Level" on products throughout our website (for an example, click here), which indicate the Common Core grade level standard the product aligns to. These resources will support your implementation of Common Core State Standards. Follow the links below to download a spreadsheet for the Remedia products aligned to the Core Math Standards & a spreadsheet for the Core English Language Arts (ELA) standards.

Grade Level: This is the traditional grade level for which the product is appropriate.

Interest Level: This is the grade level at which students will find the material interesting and relevant.

Reading Level: This is the grade level at which a student is expected to be able to read the material.
