why is the common core test a grade higher then what its suppose to be?
is the government trying to make every child fail? and our parents wonder why were having problems at home. its because of all the pressure our teachers are giving us. for example, they say things like, you better pass, if you don't i won't, so you better pass. and its no different with our parents.
Common Core Standards are likely to be much higher than what is currently in place in many states and locations. Perhaps this is the reason for your question about Common Core test being a grade higher.
Why is this so? Each state is responsible for adopting any set of standards the state so chooses. Unfortunately there have been instances where state standards were set so low that student test results often were not accurate about how well academically a student was doing.
The Common Core is designed to raise standards so that all children, no matter where they live, will receive an excellent education.
