In this edWeb.net webinar, presented by the College and Career Readiness community, Kevin Baird discussed research regarding best practices and investigated pedagogy and implementation.
What do the most difficult assessment items look like in English Language Arts and Math? How can we prepare our students for increased rigor on Common Core Assessments, including those aligned assessments in Advanced Placement Courses, International Baccalaureate, and on the SAT and ACT exams?
