PARCC has published its performance level descriptors to determine who is on-track for “college and careers.” Many schools are already following this standards based assessment methodology in order to be aligned with the Common Core. Here is a simple example of how they are rating students in schools. Explain to me how a student who answered it and received a two is not college ready? Even better, tell me how a teacher is not effective because their student only received a 2. This is a bogus way to determine which correct answer is good enough and it screams the fact that the CC is a curriculum.
