K-2 Formative Assessments (optional) To help states measure student knowledge and skills at the lower grades, the Partnership will develop a bank of assessment resources for teachers of grades K–2 that are aligned to the Common Core State Standards, and vertically aligned to the PARCC assessment system. The tasks will consist of developmentally-appropriate assessment types, such as observations, checklists, classroom activities and protocols, which reflect foundational aspects of the Common Core State Standards. The K-2 formative assessments aim to help set a foundation for students and put them on the track to college and career readiness in the early years. These K-2 assessments will help educators prepare students for later grades and provide information for educators about the knowledge and skills of the students entering third grade, allowing classroom teachers and administrators to adjust instruction as necessary. These tools also will help states fully utilize the Common Core State Standards across the entire K- 12 spectrum.
