The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a U.S. education initiative that aligns diverse state curricula with each other by following the principles of standards-based education reform.
The Common Core State Standards, released June 2, 2010, is developing college- and career-ready standards and aims to ensure these standards are internationally benchmarked to top-performing countries. These core standards represent critical learning targets for literacy and numeracy. The Common Core State Standards in English and math have been adopted by most states. This means that most schools in the US can start focusing on adjusting their curriculum to the new, rigorous standards.
Free Test Online is in the process of making math quizzes and tests aligned with the Common Core Mathematics Standards.
