A-List Education announced the release of their report- a comprehensive alignment report correlating both the SAT and ACT to the Common Core, including a general outline of the tests to provide context with a cross reference to facilitate teaching.

“School districts have been struggling to find suitable Professional Development and classroom materials for their teachers that address the new Common Core State Standards as well as provide tools and strategies to prepare students for college entrance exams as well,” says Scott Farber, President, A-List Education. “We hope this document will assist School Leaders in identifying the best material to suit their students’ needs and academic objectives.”
A-List Education’s study goes into detail about what exactly this alignment means, what parts of the test are relevant, and where to find content that cultivates and assesses these skills. Furthermore, this document gives suggestions about how to use SAT and ACT material beyond a specific prep class to continue to build these skills to target development across a range of other classes.
