Implementing the Common Core State Standards in California
Warren, Paul; Murphy, Patrick
Public Policy Institute of California
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS)--adopted in 2010--are similar to California's current K-12 standards, but their emphasis on conceptual understanding and problem solving will require changes in classroom instruction. California's transition to the CCSS has gotten off to a slow start. Survey data suggest that many teachers will deliver the new standards for the first time in 2014-15--the first year of CCSS-based testing. Like other states, California will probably see a drop in test scores under the new standards. But as the transition continues beyond 2014-15, the hope is that the new standards and tests will create incentives that lead to higher student achievement.
