"The implementation of the #CommonCore remains very much a work-in-progress, even for a school that lives and breathes high standards."

 Lower test scores are a concern when PARCC arrives in spring 2015. Dues remarked that CCA expects “proficiency” rates—the percentage of students who “pass” the exam—to fall when Ohio administers the PARCC exams.[2] This may create a quandary when discussing test results with parents and other stakeholders. His school—along with all schools in Ohio—must convey that test results are lower, not because the students have become less smart overnight. Rather, under the Common Core, the expectation of what constitutes “passing” an exam has been substantially raised.
