Common Core version vs State Version
I work with schools in Illinois and for the first time, our schools transitioned to the web-based version (had been using the server-based version for years) that is aligned to the Common Core (had used the version aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards).
I started getting comments from teachers and administrators suggesting that this new version was suddenly more rigorous "because it's aligned to the Common Core." Can this be the case as it is still an adaptive assessment that remembers the student and his/her progress?
Thank you if you have any feedback.
