A Research Agenda for the Common Core State Standards

Author(s): Center on Education Policy
Published: December 5, 2013

The Center on Education Policy, with generous support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, convened two meetings in 2013 to focus on the need for a more relevant and coordinated research agenda on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The idea behind this project was that the research agenda for the CCSS and aligned assessments should be informed not only by the interest areas of leading researchers, but also by the needs of policymakers and practitioners. In order to do that, the traditional roles, relationships, and incentives that have long kept researchers, policymakers, and practitioners huddled within their own silos will need to change. This summary report details the key findings from those meetings and makes recommendations for developing a robust and timely research agenda for the CCSS that informs both policy and practice.
