The Common Core and the Future of Student Assessment in Ohio
Porter-Magee, Kathleen
Thomas B. Fordham Institute
Ohio adopted the Common Core standards in English language arts (ELA) and math last year, but now stands at a crossroad in making sure statewide assessments are aligned to those standards. Ohio is a participating member in two federally funded assessment consortia--the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) and the Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Career (PARCC)--but is a decision-maker in neither. This paper outlines both consortia and suggests that Ohio make a decision soon to begin the massive reboot required to realign assessments, professional development, and accountability systems to match the Common Core standards. [This paper was written with Jamie Davies O'Leary and Emmy Partin. Additional funding was provided by the Ohio Grantmakers Forum.]
