What is common core

What is Common Core?

  • The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn.

  • The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers.


College and career readiness

College and Career Readiness

  • First, the Common Core State Standards Initiative presents a common definition of the knowledge and skills necessary for students to be “ready for college and career.”

  • Second, with this definition of college and career readiness in mind, the Common Core State Standards Initiative provides the most significant state-led effort to establish K–12 standards based on empirical evidence and research.

  • Typically, students are asked to complete a hands on task that can take 40 minutes or can be completed over several class periods.

  • For example, students might be asked to research and write a magazine article or to conduct and explain the results of a scientific experiment.”

  • The proportion of texts that students read each year should come from a particular text complexity grade band. Students must also show a steadily increasing ability to discern more from and make fuller use of text. Lexile Framework
