Ready or Not: Common Core Assessments

By 2014, it is expected that assessments based on the Common Core State Standards will be widespread across the country. What are the obstacles, opportunities and implications? Do schools have the needed technological capacity? How will states implement “cut scores”? Can the tests measuring “deep learning”? How high-stakes should they be?

Panelists include: Joan Herman, University of California, Los Angeles; Chris Minnich, Council of Chief State School Officers; James Pellegrino, University of Illinois-Chicago; and moderator Virginia Edwards of Education Week. Recorded at EWA’s 66th National Seminar, “Creativity Counts: Innovation in Education and the Media,” May 2-4, 2013.
