Analysis shows Maryland students positioned for Common Core

msde logoMaryland is one of three states recognized in a recent national analysis for being well positioned for the educational Common Core standards.

Maryland students have improved at a fast rate on national assessments in both reading and mathematics, at both the fourth and eighth grade levels, according to the new national report.

The analysis, from Education Trust, a Washington, DC-based education nonprofit, also found that Maryland schools “showed a strong track record for low-income and African American students.”

“Uneven at the Start: Differences in Track Records Foreshadow Challenges and Opportunities for the Common Core,” issued recently by Education Trust, uses data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) to review State track records in student improvement and achievement over the past decade. The report attempts to pinpoint the special challenges some states may have with the more rigorous academic standards.
