Article | Performance Series® K-2 Foundations Assessments

Performance Series® K–2 Reading and Mathematics Foundations assessments are aligned to a set of skills, which were developed specifically for the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and involved a review of standards documents from state and national organizations including: the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), the National Reading Panel (NRP), the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), the International Reading Association (IRA), and the National  Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). This review included unpacking the Common Core State Standards—identifying at a more granular level what students will know and be able to do when they have mastered the standard.
