What is the CCSS Initiative?
• An initiative of the National Governors
Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State
School Officers (CCSSO)
• A significant and historic opportunity for states
to collectively develop and adopt a core set of
English/Language Arts

2

What are the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?
• Fewer, clearer, and higher
• Aligned with college and work expectations
• Rigorous content requiring higher-order thinking
and application of knowledge
• Evidence- and/or research-based
• Internationally benchmarked

CCSSO/NGA Process
Fall 2009 -Released draft of College/Career Readiness Standards to states and public
Jan. 2010 -Released several drafts of K-12 Standards to states
Feb. 2010 -Released draft K-12 Standards to the public
June 2, 2010 -Released Final K-12 Standards

• Individual grade levels in K-8
• Solid foundation for grades K-5 in whole numbers,
fractions, and decimals
• Solid foundation for grades 6-8 in geometry,
algebra, and probability and statistics

9
Alignment of CCSS for Math and MS Math Framework
• Initial alignment study done in-house and
• Overall alignment is not good
• -Many specifics in the CCSS are addressed in
the MS Math Framework but at a lower
• -Several of the MS Math Framework
• objectives are not mentioned in the
• Common Core
• CCSS for Math are more rigorous than the MS Math
Framework

Alignment of CCSS English Language Arts (ELA)
and MS ELA
• Initial alignment study done in-house and
• Overall alignment is good
• -Few specifics in the CCSS are not addressed
• in the MS ELA Framework or not
• at the same grade level
• -Many of the MS ELA Framework
• objectives and sub-objectives are
not
• mentioned in the Common Core
• Rigor is comparable

14
15
Common Core State Standards
• High School

16
Common Core High School Mathematics
• CCSS Grade 8 is comparable to the current MS
Algebra I course.
• High school standards require students to
practice applying mathematical ways of thinking
to real world situations.

17
Common Core High School Mathematics
• High school standards are listed in conceptual
categories
• -number and quantity
• -algebra
• -functions
• -modeling
• -geometry
• -statistics and probability

Race to the Top (RttT) Assessment Proposals
• The Process
• Proposals were due from multi-state consortia on
June 23, 2010
• Awards were made in September, 2010
• New Consortia tests to replace current state NCLB
tests in 2014-2015
• Two Comprehensive Assessment Proposals Funded
• Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for
College and Careers (PARCC)
• 26 states, 31 million students K-12
• SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC)
• 31 states, 21 million students K-12
• Note 12 states currently in both and 6 states in
neither

RttT Assessment Program Requirements
• Build upon shared standards for college/career
• Measure individual growth as well as proficiency
• Measure the extent each student is on track, at
each grade level tested, toward college/career
readiness by high school completion, and provide
information that is useful in informing
• Teaching, learning, and program improvement
• Determinations of school effectiveness
• Determinations of educator effectiveness for use
in evaluations and provision of support to
teachers/principals
• Determinations of individual student
exit decisions, college course placement into
credit-bearing classes, and/or college entrance.

states efforts to transition to the CCSS and
assessments
• Formed the Assessment Design and Development
Committee
• Established timeline
• Met in Dec. 2010 to begin work on test
specifications
• Met in Feb. 2011 with content specialists and
post-secondary reps

PARCC Two Types of
Summative Assessments
• One to three tasks that assess a
• few keystone standards/topics
• Given at three points during the
• school year, near the end of quarters
• Results within 2 weeks to inform
• instruction and intervention
• Taken on computer, with mixed
• item types
• Scored entirely by computer for
• fast results

Scores from both focused end-of-yr.
assessments will be combined for annual
accountability score.

PARCC Focused Assessments 1 and 2
• In a single session/class period, students in
• ELA Read texts, draw evidence to form
conclusions, and prepare a written analysis
• Math For each of 1 or 2 essential topics
(standards or clusters of standards), complete 1

PARCC Focused Assessment 3
• Over several sessions/class periods, students
will complete a project-like task that draws on a
range of skills. Examples
• ELA Locate digital information, evaluate
and
• select sources, and compose an
essay or
• research paper
• Math Perform a multi-step performance task
• that requires application of
mathematical
• skills and reasoning and may
require
• technological tools
classroom,
• not used for accountability,
scored by teacher.

PARCC End-of-Year Assessment
• Composed of 40 to 65 questions of a range of
item types including innovative
technology-enhanced items to sample the full year
of standards
• Scored by computer
• Will make major investment in enhanced item types

MS Curriculum Frameworks (TBD)
• Revise/develop instructional materials (teaching
strategies, resources, assessment aids) and
offer training (TBD)
