Report: New standards contribute to academic improvement in many states
More rigorous standards in math and English language arts have contributed to improved academic achievement for students in many states including in California, a new report asserts. The analysis looked at improvements in test scores from the 2014-2015 school year to the 2015-2016 school year. In 2014-2015, most states took Common Core-aligned tests for the first time. "More than 40 states have maintained high standards, and now that we have multiple years of results with high quality assessments, we can see that higher standards are leading to improved outcomes," said Jim Cowen, executive director of the nonprofit Collaborative for Student Success, which released its report.
