Interim Growth Data Facilitates Common Core Transition

Case Study, Worthington City Schools, OH

Worthington City Schools is one of the top-performing districts in the Columbus, Ohio area. Though a quarter of its 9,500 students qualify for free and reduced lunch, 30% are identified as Gifted and Talented, and 90% go to college. Since 2007, Worthington City Schools has used Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) interim assessments to both track K – 12 student achievement and growth and to inform decisions at every level. Once Ohio chose to adopt the Common Core State Standards, the district transitioned to Common Core MAP and MAP for Primary Grades to support the needs of students, teachers, and administrators.
