Common Core Pre-Test

I have thought of a different way of viewing Common Core tests this year.  This is our educational system's pre-test.  We are seeing where we are now and where we need to go.  If we view it this way, it could be valuable to not have been able to teach what is on the test.  We can see where we are already doing fine and where we need to go.

There are, of course, a number of caveats with this.  We have to learn as we go.  We have to be willing to change the standards, change the test, change the implementations of the standards, and change the uses to which the tests are put.  There is unlikely to be enough money and time to do this well.  (See my previous post.)
