In September 2009, College and Career
Readiness standards were released
This work became the foundation for the
Common Core

Major study using three alignment indices comparing
Common Common to California Standards:



Categorical Concurrence: the extent of overlap or
match between the comparison standards and the
Common Core standards.
Depth of Knowledge Consistency: a comparison of
cognitive demand of matched content between the
sets of comparison standards and the Common Core
standards.
Breadth of Coverage: how broadly matched
comparison standards cover content elements of the
Common Core standards.
