Smarter Balanced Assessments
Riverside Unified School District has produced a Parent Video that describes the purposes of Smarter Balanced assessments. This 4:40 minute video is told from a student perspective about the importance of the Smarter Balanced Summative test results, and how the new tests will help inform and prepare students for their future.
This video is an excellent resource to share with parents, interested community members, school board members and district and school site staff.
Mathematics Resources for Parents and Guardians
The CDE’s Common Core Team has received several requests from parents who want to know more about the instruction their child is receiving in mathematics. To address this need, the Common Core Team has made available the Mathematics Resources for Parents and Guardians Web page. On this page, parents are first advised to work with their child’s teachers as they are the most familiar with the mathematics program being used at their child’s school. Parents are also provided with information about the transition to newer methods of mathematics instruction and resources that explain the CCSS for mathematics and provide suggestions for parents and guardians for supporting their child’s academic success. Please feel free to share this resource with parents and guardians in your community.
