NEW MEXICO – STANDARDS AND ASSESSMENTS

Score:

New Mexico is implementing high standards and aligned assessments.

 

New Mexico’s plan continues the state’s commitment to the Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards. The state uses Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessments. The state also continues to include assessments in earlier grades (K-2), and in Spanish. New Mexico also has a social studies assessment.

 

New Mexico should also be commended for specifically including a plan for how it will use its federal funds to cover Advanced Placement exam fees for low-income students.

 

New Mexico recognizes the alternate assessment for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities as a part of its assessment system.

 

However, it could improve its plan by describing how it will meet the 1 percent participation cap for these assessments.
