Common Core State Standards and Assessments Collection
The IDEA Partnership offers this collection of information and resources about the Common Core State Standards and students and youth with disabilities. Resources include helpful tools for presenting information about Common Core to parents and practitioners and a regular webinar series on the topic. Participants in the Overview webinar are offered the opportunity to request virtual mentoring to develop a customized plan for integrating the tools into their work.
The IDEA Partnership reflects the collaborative work of more than 50 national organizations, including the Office of Special Education Programs, technical assistance providers and organizations and agencies at state and local level that are working to improve outcomes for students and youth with disabilities.
Beyond Common Core State Standards in English/language arts and mathematics, DC has adopted these rigorous content-area learning standards and guides for arts, early learning, health and physical education, science, social studies, technology and world language.
Visitors may try out a few sample test questions on the technology platform that many students will use while taking the PARCC assessments. Sample test questions are provided for elementary, middle, and high school grade bands.
