The Council of Great City Schools in partnership with Student Achievement Partners and the Council of Chief State School Officers hosted a webinar on March 19, 2013 dedicated to providing high-level guidance on aligning interim/benchmark assessments to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Over 230 leaders of assessments from 46 states participated in the webinar.
