State Implementation of Common Core State Standards: Timeline and Approach to Standards and Assessments
The Southern Regional Education Board is conducting a multi-year study of how 14 states are implementing the Common Core State Standards. The topic of this report (one of the six benchmarking reports on CCSS implementation progress in 14 states) is Timeline and Approach to Standards and Assessments. This report provides state profiles on “the basic decisions and actions that state education policy-makers are taking to foster successful statewide implementation of the new standards and aligned assessments” (p. 1). The profiles found in this report provide a descriptive overview of each state’s implementation efforts. Information from these profiles was gathered from a review of publicly available information and interviews with department leaders.
