NY parents were told their children (as young as 8) were taking a test that would measure college/career readiness,  while reformers paraded the Common Core as the path to college/career readiness.  The visions seemed aligned, right until NY unveiled its translation of the Common Core through its high-stakes tests.

Out of the 86 combinations of Common Core standards & strands (ELA 3rd grade ), NYS only chose to test 15% of them on the 2014 ELA .  This leaves teachers, administrators, parents, students and colleges/careers wondering if these 15% can truly be the measure of college/career readiness.
