This link shows you the standards and goals that each grade level are to achieve by the end of the school year in dance. Here is the definition and the purpose for the use of these standards, based on Georgia Department of Education.
Definition of Standards: Standards are statements that define what students should know and be able to do upon completion of specific levels of instruction as well as how they will respond to their environment. Standards serve as a guide for excellence and are differentiated from minimum competencies or outcomes because they describe the challenging goals for expanding and improving education.
Georgia Performance Standards: Georgia’s performance standards provide clear expectations for instruction, assessment, and student work. They define the level of work that demonstrates achievement of the standards, enabling a teacher to know “how good is good enough.” Performance standards isolate and identify the skills needed to use the knowledge and skills to problem-solve, reason, communicate, and make connections with other information. They also tell the teacher how to assess the extent to which the student understands the standard and can manipulate and apply the information. Performance standards incorporate the content standard, which simply tells the teacher what a student is expected to know (e.g., what concepts he or she is expected to master) and be able to do. Supporting elements are established and further define and support each content standard. Content standards and elements provide the foundation for developing three additional items: suggested student tasks, sample student work, and teacher commentary on student work.
