Big year looms for Common Core testing
from Education Week
For four years, schools in nearly every state have been working to put the Common Core State Standards into practice in classrooms, but few have put them to the test — literally. This year, that changes. The 2014-2015 academic year is when nearly every state must have assessments in place to reflect the Common Core, or other "college- and career-ready" standards they have adopted. And unlike last year, when many states were allowed to cut back on their regular tests because they were field-testing new assessments, this year's achievement results will be a cornerstone of states' public accountability reporting.
