The Center on Standards, Alignment, Instruction, and Learning (C-SAIL), funded from July 2015 through 2020 by the Institute of Education Sciences, examined how college- and career-readiness (CCR) standards were implemented, if they improved student learning, and what instructional tools measured and supported their implementation.


What's next for standards-based reform? With the release of the 2019 National Assessment of Educational Progress results in math and reading, it became clear that standards-based reform has not moved the needle on student achievement. This may be due, in part, to how districts, schools, and teachers are making sense of and implementing college- and career-readiness standards. On Thursday, May 28, 2020, the Center on Standards, Alignment, Instruction, and Learning (C-SAIL) hosted a virtual event to share what we've discovered over the last five years examining standards implementation and impact at the state, district, school, and classroom level and engage practitioners, policymakers, and researchers to look to the future of standards-based reform.
