- Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium Smarter Balanced is a state-led consortium developing assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics designed to help prepare all students to graduate high school college and career ready. Delaware is currently a governing state in the consortium.
- Smarter Balanced Item Samplers Zip files that contain item samplers for all grades organized by claims. The assessment tasks consist of short constructed response, extended constructed response, performance tasks, and technology enhanced items. You can also access the item samplers, by grade level, below.
- Illustrative Mathematics Project Developed by the lead author of the Common Core in Math. Assessment tasks are correlated to standards for all grade levels. Samples of student responses are shown and commentary is given for each assessment task.
- Mathematics Assessment Project This project is designing and developing well-engineered assessment tools to support US schools in implementing the Common Core State Standards. Numerous assessment tasks are posted that correlate to the depth of knowledge asked for in the Common Core State Standards in Grades 6-12.
Delaware's Common Core State Standards for Mathematics Assessment Examples - The following documents are designed to help understand the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) by providing examples that show a range of format and complexity. They are works in progress, and it does not represent all aspects of the standards. Please send comments and suggestions to Rita Fry (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Katia Foret (email@example.com).
High School Alignment Documents - DCAS Aligned to Common Core State Standards. The following documents show the alignment of the Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System (DCAS) to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), as reflected on the computer-adaptive test. To respect the intent of the CCSS, all standards are represented in either the traditional or integrated pathway documents. Therefore, all standards should be taught in grades 9 through 11 to ensure continuity of learning.
The standards that are identified in each document are specific to that course. Where there are gaps in numbering of the standards, please refer to the Overview of the Pathway document to see the vertical alignment within that CCSS domain.
Please note: these documents are evolving and if you want to submit comments, please e-mail Rita Fry (firstname.lastname@example.org).
