Common Core State Standards

Washington is among the 46 states to have adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The Standards themselves have attracted support from a wide spectrum of the mathematics and mathematics education communities. Clearly the impact of the Standards, while based on their quality, resides more directly in their implementation and in the assessments designed to support them. Washington is working closely with Smarter Balanced Assessments, one of the two large federally funded consortia that are designing CCSS assessments. Information about the CCSS can be found at http://www.corestandards.org, and about the assessment progress at http://www.smarterbalanced.org. A lot of discussion is happening in and out of the state, and we will be attaching as much as seems to clarify the issues.
