Cross-State Findings. Benchmarking State Implementation of College- and Career-Readiness Standards, Aligned Assessments and Related Reforms
Anderson, Kimberly; Mira, Mary Elizabeth
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
Implementation of college- and career-readiness standards is some of the most important work currently underway in states to improve student achievement and public education overall. SREB examined the efforts of 14 states--including 11 SREB states--to support implementation of new college- and career-readiness standards. The goal of the research was to document the steps states have taken and to highlight exemplary efforts, in order to provide feedback to states, foster cross-state dialogue, and inform states' drive for continuous improvement. This "Cross-State Findings Report" summarizes the findings of this research. This report is accompanied by five separate topic-specific reports, each presenting a detailed profile of the 14 states' efforts in one of these five areas: (1) Timeline and Approach to Standards and Assessments (ED559249); (2) Aligned Teaching Resources (ED559251); (3) Professional Development (ED559253); (4) Evaluation of Teachers and Leaders (ED559255); and (5) Accountability (ED559257). Together, these reports represent the cumulative findings of SREB's Benchmarking College- and Career-Readiness Standards project. These cumulative reports update the information in the preliminary reports to reflect state efforts and plans between 2010 and summer 2014.
