State Testing Standards: How States Stack Up (Video)

| No comments

In the 10 years since the Common Core State Standards were developed, most states have adopted one of three common-core-aligned state tests: ACT Aspire, PARCC, and Smarter Balanced. Meanwhile, a handful of states have chosen to partially or completeley repeal the standards.

A new report compared the benchmarks and cut scores for each state test against a national assessment. Watch the video for some of the findings.
