Overview
With this funding, Fordham would develop a report addressing potential governance and sustainability models for the multistate Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium. These consortia, which promise to dramatically improve testing of deeper learning knowledge and skills for a majority of U.S. schoolchildren, presently have no clear plans for operation or oversight after federal funding ends in the 2014–15 school year—when they deliver the first Common Core assessments.
