Does Common Core Teaching Lead to Improved Student Learning?

Home / Presentation / Does Common Core Teaching Lead to Improved Student Learning?
Abstract/Description:

Policy-makers in the U.S. have asked teachers both to implement Common Core Standards and improve student achievement. While many assume that these goals work in concert, research suggests that links between teaching quality and student outcomes may be more tenuous. We explore whether implementation of new Common Core-aligned achievement tests might strengthen these relationships, focusing on a test considered a model for these assessments and an observational instrument aligned with the Common Core.
