The Common Core State Standards

A policy overview

Aligned with college and work expectations for ELA and math

Focused and coherent

Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills

Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards

Internationally benchmarked so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society

Based on evidence and research

State led – coordinated by NGA Center and CCSSO

SOURCE: Common Core State Standards, www.corestandards.org

- must adopt 100%of CCSS K-12 standards
- CCSS should not represent more than 85% of curriculum

- must begin assessments on CCSS within three years
- no requirements for public accountability

SOURCE: NGA, CCSSO

46 states & DC have adopted the CCSS

True

- CCSSO and NGA’s Center for Best Practices
- Advisory group: Achieve, Inc.; ACT, Inc.; College Board, NASBE, and SHEEO
- Two rounds of public review
- Final documents released June 2010
- No federal dollars for development; foundation support

- supports NGA/CCSSO state-led process
- supports federal funding for research and/or help to states for developing assessments
- supports nationally available tests that states may adopt voluntarily
- opposes federal mandates or coercion, eg. a condition for receiving Title 1 funds

- Collaboration of Achieve, NRC, AAAS, NSTA and 26 lead states
- “Internationally benchmarked”
- Final version released April 9, 2013
- Intended to be adopted ‘in whole’
- Carnegie Corp, Noyce Foundation & Dupont sponsors

26 lead states – Next Generation Science Standards

Mostly true

- federal dollars support assessment development
- state consortia are doing the work

- formed to develop common “next generation” assessments aligned to the CCSS
- supported by $346 million federal grants
- PARCC: Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College & Careers headed by Achieve, Inc.
- SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium headed by Washington state department of education

24 states & DC are in the PARCC consortium

28 states are in the SMARTER consortium

- Alternative assessments: $67 million to Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) and National Center and State Collaboration (NCSC)
- Assessments for students with “most significant cognitive impairments”

- Assessments for ELL: $10.5 million to ASSETS, Assessment Services Supporting ELLs Through Technology Systems

Expert panel to review consortia processes:

- how they establish test validity
- how they developed test items
The panel will not review individual items

Not true, but it didn’t hurt

College- and career- ready standards must be:

- common to a significant number of states; or
- approved by a “state network of institutions of higher education”, certify students will not need remedial courses (a network of 4-year IHEs that enroll at least 50% of students who attend state’s 4-year public IHEs).
High quality assessments must be:

- Valid, reliable and fair; measure college & career readiness.
- Measure student growth.

Race to the Top

- States do not have to adopt common standards to be eligible; but get points for doing so, more points for joining larger consortium (e.g. CCSSO/NGA).
- Points for supporting transition to new standards/assessments.
- Same criteria applied to assessments.
- Make up 70 points of 500 points total.

NCLB waivers

- develop and implement rigorous college- & career-ready standards & assessments in reading & math.
- adopt English language proficiency standards aligned to new standards and assessments to support ELL students.

- technology

- were your standards due for an overhaul anyway?
- are these things your state needs?

The Common Core State Standards

How they differ from current practice

Not true

- CCSS “clearly superior” to 39 states’ standards in math and 37 states in ELA
- CCSS “clearly inferior” to 3 states in ELA
- All others were about the same

Standards for reading and writing in history/social

studies, science, and technical subjects

- Complement rather than replace content standards in those subjects
- Responsibility of teachers in those subjects
Emphasis on research and using evidence

Attention to text complexity

SOURCE: Common Core Standards, June 2010

US students do well internationally in reading literature but fall behind in reading for information.

Rankings based on statistically significant differences in scores between US and other countries.

SOURCE: Common core state standards, ELA, Appendix B, www.corestandards.org

Two CCSS standards are always in play—whether they be reading or writing items:

- Reading Standard One (Use of Evidence)
- Reading Standard Ten (Complex Texts)

SOURCE: PARRC, August 2012

Use what you have learned from reading “Daedalus and Icarus” by Ovid and “To a Friend Whose Work Has Come to Triumph” by Anne Sexton to write an essay that provides an analysis of how Sexton transforms Daedalus and Icarus.

* * *

Develop your essay by providing textual evidence from both texts. Be sure to follow the conventions of standard English.

Let’s take a look

Which of the following numbers will round to 26?

- 25.3
- 25.5
- 26.7
- 27.1

SOURCE: Virginia SOL released items, grade 4 math, 2010

Capacity of different baseball stadiums

San Francisco Giants’ stadium: 41,915 seats

Washington Nationals’ stadium: 41,888 seats

San Diego Padres’ stadium: 42,445 seats

Jeff said, “I get the same number when I round all three numbers of seats in these stadiums.”

Sara said, “When I round them, I get the same number for two of the stadiums but a different number for the other stadium.”

Can Jeff and Sara both be correct? Explain how you know.

SOURCE: The Mathematics Common Core Toolbox, grade 4

- Both assess rounding
- The second further requires the ability to reason mathematically, critique the reasoning of others, and communicate their own reasoning

Remains to be seen

The Common Core State Standards

The challenges

PARCC/SMARTER assessments will be ready in 2014-15

Kentucky has already started

- 33 states offer some level of online testing
- Most don’t assess all students
- Most are voluntary
- Most are summative only
- Most schools will need more computers & more bandwidth

SOURCE: SETDA, Technology Requirements for Large Scale, Computer-Based & Online Assessment, June 2011

- Professional development for staff
- Do teachers have sufficient time and support to learn new standards?

- Aligned assessments & curriculum
- Aligned instructional materials
- Supports for students

- Long term (mutual) benefits
- Engage local media in your efforts

Monitor district’s progress toward successful implementation of the new standards

- What kind of reports is the board receiving?
- How does the superintendent’s evaluation reflect implementation of the standards?
- Establish relationships with key stakeholders

SOURCE: David Baird, Kentucky School Boards Association, 2013

- State Level Collaboration
- Include relevant topics on board agendas & work sessions
- Use multiple sources of information
