Support for Implementing College- and Career-Ready Standards and Assessments

Background

The SECC will work with SEAs to strengthen their plans for implementing college- and career-ready standards (CCRS) and assessments by (a) identifying and providing high-quality resources that are supported by research-based and emerging promising practices; (b) collecting feedback from districts, schools, and teachers to determine the quality, usefulness, and relevance of the resources and supports they are providing; (c) adjusting and refining their implementation plans and resources to address identified needs or concerns; and (d) developing and implementing an assessment and accountability network of SEA staffs.

The following is a link to the most recent list of CCRS and assessment resources: http://www.air.org/resource/college-and-career-readiness-standards-and-assessment-resource-list which is published on the AIR website.
