CFPB Releases Financial Education Curriculum Review Tool
Friday, October 23, 2015 6:25 AM

Resource Will Help Guide Educators Looking to Select Appropriate Financial Education Material for Students

Wednesday, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau released a tool that educators can use when selecting financial education curriculum for students. The curriculum review tool will help educators identify effective and unbiased material to increase the financial capability of students. By providing relevant evaluation criteria, the tool can help educators judge the value of financial education material for their students.

The curriculum review tool guides users through four key aspects of high quality financial education curriculum: content, utility, quality, and efficacy.

  • Curriculum Content: This helps reviewers assess whether a curriculum covers key topics and skills that are relevant, age-appropriate, and prioritized across major national financial education content standards.
  • Curriculum Utility: This helps reviewers determine whether the prospective curriculum provides instructional guidance and materials designed to facilitate strong and effective financial education instruction.
  • Curriculum Quality: This helps reviewers assess whether the material is presented in an accurate and objective manner to students.
  • Curriculum Efficacy: This helps reviewers determine how well the prospective curriculum improves students’ financial knowledge, skills, and behaviors.
