The Common Core State Standards are a new set of learning standards that describe the skills and knowledge students are expected to have at each grade level in order to be college and/or career ready by the time they graduate from high school. New York State has adopted the Common Core and teachers across the state are now planning lessons and assignments using the Common Core. State tests are also being redesigned to measure student progress in meeting the Common Core standards.
