Teacher Implementation of College and Career-Ready Standards: Challenges & Resources

Roughly seven years have passed since the majority of states adopted college- and career-readiness (CCR) standards. Some states adopted the Common Core State Standards while others adopted their own versions of CCR standards.

Because teachers are the primary implementers of CCR standards, we wanted to understand the challenges they face in using the standards in the classroom, the resources they find to be most helpful, and their attitudes toward the standards. This brief examines these issues using 2016–2017 survey data from Texas, Ohio, and Kentucky.

  1. What challenges do teachers face in implementing CCR standards?
  2. What resources do teachers find helpful in implementing CCR standards?
  3. To what extent do teachers think that the standards are appropriate, rigorous, and flexible?
