Assessing the Common Core Standards: Opportunities for Improving Measures of Instruction
Porter, Andrew; McMaken, Jennifer; Hwang, Jun; Yang, Rui
Educational Researcher, v40 n4 p186-188 May 2011
This article responds to comments on the authors' "Educational Researcher" article "Common Core Standards: The New U.S. Intended Curriculum" (April 2011). The authors note points of agreement and difference with the commentators. They observe that Cobb and Jackson, in their response, and Beach, in his, appear to accept the authors' methods and findings, although these commentators suggest additional perspectives that should be brought to bear when addressing quality and change. The authors agree with Beach, Cobb, and Jackson that quality is difficult to define and assess, and they state that additional conceptualizations of mathematics and English language arts content and additional conceptualizations of how to define and measure alignment among content standards, materials, assessments, and instruction should be explored. They look forward to renewed efforts in this research area.
