Pennsylvania officially joined and is participating in both the multi-state assessment consortia, SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) as an advisory state.
PA’s Common Core standards include all of the national Common Core standards verbatim; however, states may add additional statements to the standard set to incorporate any PA standards not addressed in Common Core. As analysis and alignment studies continue, there is a possibility of limited additions to the Common Core Standards in the future.
