## What is the algebra framework?

The algebra framework is a tool designed to help teachers gather, consider, and act upon specific information about how their students understand algebra. The framework is made up of an interconnected series of components that includes an algebra learning model, diagnostic tests, an interpretation guide with scoring rubrics, and practical instructions.
