New Common Core Assessments
Who is creating them?
SMARTER-Balanced Assessment Consortium
Who else is using these tests?
Currently 24 states
What is the purpose?
To develop a comprehensive and innovative assessment system
for grades 3-8 and grade 11 in English Language Arts and
Mathematics aligned to the Common Core Standards so that
students leave high school prepared for post secondary success
in college or a career.
What will happen to CSTs?
These tests will replace CST, CMA, and STS. Hedenkamp students
will take both the language arts and math CAL-MAPP field tests
in grades 3-6 in the spring.
How will the MAPP tests be different
than the CST?
