      The Common Core State Standards:

 Are aligned with college and workforce expectations;
 Are clear, understandable and consistent;
 Include rigorous content and application of knowledge
  through high-order skills;
 Build upon strengths and lessons of current state
  standards;
 Are informed by standards in other top performing
  countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed
  in our global economy and society; and
 Are evidence-based.
                 The Standards

English Language Arts        Mathematics
          Overview of CCSS vs GLEs/GSEs

 GLEs/GSEs are a blueprint for assessment
 CCSS represent what students should know and be able
    to do
   Some CCSS are not found in GLEs/GSEs
   Some GLEs/GSEs are not found in CCSS
   Identical expectations in both sets of standards but
    appear in different grade levels
   Identical expectations in both sets of standards but a
    different focus
   CCSS are clearer and more specific than GLEs/GSEs

             Alternate Assessment & ELPS

 Alternate Assessment Standards
   Develop new Alternate Assessment Standards based upon
    CCSS
   Most likely be 1 year behind CCSS


 ELPS: English Language Proficiency Standards
   ELPS will not be altered

   ELPS are being “amplified” to reflect the CCSS
       Will most likely see content examples reflect the CCSS
       MPIs will be aligned to CCSS

     ACCESS assessment: no anticipated changes
