Additional Resources

Joe Willhoft suggested these resources about the assessments connected to the Common Core State Standards.

  • The Council of the Great City Schools created “Parent Roadmaps to the Common Core Standards” (www.cgcs.org/Page/244) in English language arts/literacy and mathematics to provide guidance to parents about what their children will be learning and how they can support that learning in grades K-8.
  • The James B. Hunt Jr. Institute for Educational Leadership and Policy and the Council of Chief State School Officers partnered to produce a series of videos (www.youtube.com/user/TheHuntInstitute) that provide short introductions to the CCSS, their guiding principles and how they will inform the concepts taught at each grade level.
  • The National PTA created grade-by-grade guides for mathematics and English language arts/literacy (www.pta.org/4446.htm) to help parents understand the Common Core State Standards.
  • Student Achievement Partners (www.achievethecore.org) provides a variety of free and easy-to-use tools, resources and research to help with implementing the CCSS.
