More than half the nation’s students live in states that will not be using the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers and Smarter Balanced assessments this year.

Fifty-three percent of students live in states that will be testing the Common Core State Standards—or whatever standards they chose—with tests designed for those standards, or purchased off the shelf.

Twenty-eight percent of U.S. students live in states that will be using the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium tests to gauge mastery of English/language arts and math; 18 percent are in states using the parcc tests.
