In 2010, Illinois began implementing the new Illinois Learning Standards, based on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).  The CCSS provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn in English Language Arts and Mathematics as they progress through grades K – 12.

In school year 2014 | 2015, Illinois will be rolling out new assessments aligned to the CCSS.  The new assessments will be used to guage how well students are mastering the CCSS – and, ultimately, how ready they are for college and further career education.
