|Common Core ELA Alignment Documents Posted|
The Office of Assessment has posted a new set of English Language Arts documents designed to provide districts with guidance on making the transition from OAKS assessments to those measuring the new Common Core State Standards. Entitled Alignment of English Language Arts Standards to the Common Core, grade-by-grade versions and a full compilation across all grades can be found at: http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=3298.
These documents provide educators information about the degree of alignment between the currently-assessed Oregon ELA standards and the new Common Core Standards, what knowledge and skills will be new or moved to a different grade level, how the emphasis might be shifting relating to specific skills, and what might be tested on the state test that previously would have been part of a classroom assessment.
