Crosswalk Analysis of Deeper Learning Skills to Common Core State Standards
Conley, David T.
Educational Policy Improvement Center (NJ1)
The Educational Policy Improvement Center (EPIC) conducted a crosswalk between the Deeper Learning Skills (DLS) and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The purpose of the crosswalk was to understand the ways in which strategies for deeper learning relate to the CCSS. This comparison was not solely or simply an alignment study, although some elements of content alignment methodology were employed in the first round of reviews. Alignment studies are used to determine matches between sets of standards or between a set of standards and one or more assessments. Because the DLS are not a set of content standards, nor are they an assessment, it is not appropriate to use alignment methodology exclusively when exploring relationships between the DLS and content standard systems such as the CCSS. Overall, findings indicate that the CCSS are a strong foundation for learning and teaching the deeper learning skills as defined by the Hewlett Foundation. Deeper learning skills were consistently identified as being essential contributors to student mastery of the CCSS, even in areas with less than direct correspondence. Appended are: (1) The Common Core State Standards Included in the Crosswalk; and (2) Crosswalk Analysis of Deeper Learning Skills to Common Core State Standards. (Contains 6 tables and 3 footnotes.)
