"A National Perspective on the Common Core and PARCC"
During this session, Callie Riley will provide a brief history of the development of the Common Core State Standards, an in-depth look into the ways in which the PARCC assessments are being developed to align to these new college-ready standards, and the importance of the assessments as a tool for ensuring the Common Core reaches every student in every classroom. She will also address the role of the Common Core State Standards and aligned assessments in advancing the national college readiness, access and completion agenda and how K-12 and postsecondary educators can continue to be engaged in PARCC going forward.
