State adoption of the Common Core State Standards prompted a number of geographically and politically diverse responses from state legislatures. This webpage provides links to information for state legislators and legislative staff on the CCSS covering the following topics: Overview of the Common Core State Standards; information related to the assessment consortia; Common Core State Standards legislation; costs associated with the Common Core State Standards; and promises versus challenges related to implementing the CCSS.
This site adds specific value to legislators who want to know more about CCSS, information on potential cost impacts, state specific legislation, and other related matters. It is well-designed and limited in its scope and purpose, which adds to its value for the specific target audience. It provides links to quality sites and resources, which should prove valuable for its targeted set of users.
