In this article we learn about a program called Common Core State Standards and the programs related to it. It delves into its two assessments which are Partnership for the Assessment of College and Career Readiness. The author express their fondness of the program and their doing away with outdated method such as filling in bubbles and onto more advanced ventures.

Opponents of Common Core believe that its curriculum does not fit special education students’ needs and it doesn’t let teachers focus on students’ individual needs.

Although the program is moving toward a more advance method some of its members are still leaving. Some speculated reasons for that are possibly timing and maybe even a backlash against anything that was proposed from Washington. It even stated how those doubting seemingly didn’t like it would use replicas with different naming. One thing that seems to be agreed on however is that the advancement of testing is here to stay.
States have already and will continue to take this review upon themselves, which, of course, will lead to less common standards over time. We also need more of a push to develop other aspects of the assessment system to support instruction and learning.

Key Takeaways:

States are refusing to use the common core set of standards despite the time and money invested in them.
Timing may play a huge role in common core being rejected at a time when most Washington-based political moments met with resistance.
However, The Race to the Top program and federal waivers requiring states to give test-based teacher evaluation policies the same year the new assessments went into effect might have been the final straw for teachers’ unions.
