Is the Common Core Working?

Evaluation and Revision Process

  • The Common Core is systematically evaluated and revised on an ongoing basis.
  • To provide feedback on curriculum, evaluation materials, field activities and/or online learning, please complete the Common Core 3.0 Quarterly Update form.
  • CalSWEC and our in-service training partners collaborate to systematically evaluate the effectiveness of the Common Core. General information on the process and results of the Common Core Evaluation is found under Evaluation, Research, and Implementation. This page links to a private site for training evaluators.
    In order to maintain the security of the test items and evaluation data, more detailed information on the administration of the Common Core Evaluation is maintained on a private site for training evaluators. CalSWEC encourages the public use of the Common Core and can share evaluation tools and item banks upon request.
  • If you are interested in obtaining more detailed information and tools about evaluation, please contact Mike Sumner:
