College and Career Readiness
Based on the work you've been doing in your school to implement College and Career Readiness Standards, along with what you learned in Module 2 of this course, you should have a solid understanding of the CCRS. As you've learned in this Module, the Next Generation Assessments are aligned to the CCRS.
Next, we're going to look at some of the major shifts in instruction that will be required in delivering content to meet the standards. After that, we'll take a look at some sample assessment items. As you look at the sample items, try to make connections betwen the standards, shifts, and how the assessment items will measure students' ability to demonstrate understanding of the standards.
