Ashford Univ Edu695 Common Core Presentation

In the Common Core State Standards discussion for Week Two, you describe the foundation of CCSS anddiscuss how CCSS can be used to influence the use oftechnology-enhanced instructional strategies to support the needs of alllearners. Here, you continue the discussion on CCSS, but from theperspective of linking report cards to the CCSS. It is common to thinkabout how creating report cards that are linked to CCSS will defineexpectations for student learning, communicate student progress toparents, provides a consistent approach to assessment evaluations, andfocuses on academic achievement. As needed, review the Hunt Institute video below (click this link to view the video transcript), which covers the history and development of the CCSS.

For this discussion, you will adopt the role of a school leader andcreate a digital presentation using the software of your choice (e.g., PowerPoint, Present.me, YouTube, Prezi, Jing, SlideRocket,or another program). Your audience for this presentation can be either aschool board or a stakeholder directly in the school setting, such asteachers, other staff, or students. If you use software other thanPowerPoint, submit notes for each slide as part of your post. If you usePowerPoint, be sure to include notes for each talking point on slidesin the notes section for each slide. The presentation needs to be six toeight slides, excluding the title and references slides, and cite atleast one scholarly source in addition to the required resources forthis week. 

Ensure that your presentation:

  • Explains the purpose of CCSS.
  • Explains how the CCSS are used within a school for teaching and learning. 
  • Justifies why creating report cards based on the CCSS isimportant in the school or district (depending on the role you chose totake as noted in the initial post directions above). 
  • Summarizes your understanding of how embedding evidence-basedassessment in the curriculum can help guide teachers and learners indecision making.
