A Research Agenda for the Common Core State Standards: What Information Do Policymakers Need?
As part of a broader project to better connect the research on Common Core State Standards (CCSS) to policy and practice, Center on Education Policy met with individuals from organizations representing state and local education policymakers to learn of their memberships’ research and data needs around the Common Core.
The conversations yielded four areas of policy-related research that will be needed in the coming year: (1) case studies of successful implementation of the CCSS; (2) studies of state and local CCSS outreach strategies; (3) studies of state education agency capacity to lead the CCSS implementation; and (4) analyses of the impact of federal education requirements on CCSS implementation.
