CCSSO Webinar: One Percent Assessment Consortia and the Common Core

Title:  One Percent Assessment Consortia and the Common Core

Recording Date: Tuesday, July 10, 2 p.m. ET

Description: On July 10 at 2 p.m. ET, CCSSO hosted a webinar to provide an overview of the two 1% percent assessment consortia, Dynamic Learning Maps and the National Center and State Collaborative (NCSC) Partnership. These new alternate assessments that serve students with the most significant cognitive disabilities will be aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and are expected to fit cohesively within the comprehensive assessment systems under development by the federal grant recipients: the Partnership for Assessment Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (Smarter Balanced). Both DLM and NCSC are to be ready for use by the 2014-15 school year, the same year in which the comprehensive assessment systems will be operational. Rachel Quenemoen, NCSC, and Neal Kingston, DLM, discussed similarities and differences between the consortia and how their work connects to the Common Core, which was followed by Q&A with the audience.
