Louisiana - Student Assessments: Social Studies
Louisiana is aligning assessments to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and math. In Spring 2014, students will take new writing and math tests. The writing assessment will require students to read one or two passages and use facts in the text to support their essay. In math, students will be asked to demonstrate skills in earlier grades. Assessments in grades 3-8 will be fully aligned to Common Core State Standards in 2014-2015.
