Article | Scantron’s Approach to Text Complexity in Achievement Series and Performance Series

Students must be exposed to texts at varied levels of complexity to meet Common Core Standards. Responding to this trend, the Common Core addresses text complexity and increases the demands placed on students in an effort to better prepare them for college or careers. Text complexity is specifically mentioned in the grade-level reading standards and is elaborated in Appendix A of the Common Core ELA Standards. Scantron supports text complexity in our assessment solutions.
