Marzano Topics were developed by researcher Robert J. Marzano. Enabling Marzano topics allow standards to be grouped by one or more topic. Additionally, report cards can also be modified to display Marzano Topics. It's important to note that enabling Marzano Topics will not alter the way your report card looks nor will it change the behavior of the standards already in use at your school.
Enabling Marzano Topics
As a Full Administrator (or as a Limited Administrator with the appropriate access), go to the Classes tab, select a subject and enable Marzano Topics.
For teachers, standards are grouped into Marzano topics whether they appear in lesson plans or assignments.
If Marzano Topics are enabled, the Standards Met report will show standards grouped by Marzano topic
If Marzano Topics are enabled, the report card will have an option to show Marzano Topics. Marzano Topics do not appear on the report card by default. One must select this option separately on the report card profile to enable it.
