Purpose of NDCDE’s Courses

NDCDE exists to help students learn and to ensure that the quality of each student’s learning experience meets or exceeds all standards and expectations. NDCDE does not work alone. It relies on teachers, schools, curriculum providers, software providers, parents, government officials, and citizens to partner with NDCDE for the benefit of students.

NDCDE, in partnership with all members of the education community, seeks to add value to each student. The value(s) sought is made plain to each student. Each value is measured via student performance. The result is a student who realizes what has been learned, knows how to apply what has been learned, and recognizes the value of what has been learned.
