CEP Releases Common Core Research Agenda
The Center on Education Policy today released "A Research Agenda for the Common Core State Standards: What Information Do Policymakers Need?" As part of a project to connect research on Common Core State Standards (CCSS) to policy and practice, authors Diane Stark Rentner and Maria Ferguson met with state and local education policymakers to find out their memberships’ research and data needs around the Common Core.
Respondents cited four areas of policy-related research that they will need in the coming year:
- case studies of successful implementation of the CCSS;
- studies of state and local CCSS outreach strategies;
- studies of state education agencies' capacity to lead the CCSS implementation; and
- analyses of the impact of federal education requirements on CCSS implementation.
