Chalk Talk: Common Core Implementation
With the implementation of Common Core State Standards in more than 40 states in the United States, a national assessment to complement the curriculum seems to be in order. One big next step is the development of assessments to measure the progress of Common Core and student achievement in meeting the expectations. The goal is that the assessments students take clearly measure the objectives laid out in the Common Core Curriculum. Two groups are currently working to develop assessments. The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium and the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers should have those assessments available this school year. Many of the states have chosen to participate in one of the two consortia so that they can pool resources and collaborate on best assessment practices.
