Wednesday Webinar: A Reporters’ Guide to Common Core Testing

Almost from the outset, we’ve been warned that the implementation of new assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards would be a bumpy road. But now that the first major wave of the testing is wrapping up, it’s a good time to take a step back and assess the situation.

Did districts conquer the expected challenges of the necessary technology upgrades? How many parents really did pull their kids out of testing? Where did things go better than anyone had predicted? And what’s up next on the testing beat? (Test scores, of course.)

This Wednesday, June 3, at 1 p.m. Eastern time, join our EWA Webinar to hear from two reporters –one national, and one regional — about smart ways to cover Common Core testing. You’ll come away with fresh story ideas, tips for digging deeper, and a better understanding of the experience of schools, districts, and states with the new assessment landscape.

To get you started, take a look at a few stories on these topics by our featured presenters:
