NEW! - Transitioning to the Common Core State Standards
and Next Generation Assessments
The Common Core State Standards and related next generation assessments will have an enormous impact on K-12 education. This resource kit details a plan of action to help leaders at all levels prepare for the new standards and assessments.
Based on the latest research on student achievement and internationally benchmarked college and work expectations, the kit answers the questions:
- What do fewer, clearer, higher standards mean and how will the notion translate as districts adopt or adapt the new standards?
- How will the new assessments differ from what has been the practice under No Child Left Behind?
- How can the International Center’s Rigor/Relevance Framework® help explain and facilitate transition to the new standards and assessments?
- What kind of visioning, planning, and retooling do districts and schools need to be undertaking now to prepare for mandated implementations in 2014?
This kit includes a CD and is available in the online store for $295.
