Khan Academy now Common Core aligned

To make sure the materials are rigorous and fully aligned to the Common Core, Khan enlisted the help of several organizations involved in the design and assessment of the new standards, including Illustrative Mathematics and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium.

“Khan Academy has helped to make the Common Core math standards come to life in my classroom,” said Shelby Harris, a seventh grade teacher in Kuna, Idaho, who piloted the new content, in a press release. “It is my go-to resource when lesson planning, and my students are more prepared than ever.”

To help teachers prepare their students for the Common Core, Khan Academy is offering several new teacher resources as well, Khan said. For example, teachers can use a new Common Core Map to quickly find math exercises by standard and assign them to students. They also can use real-time reports to track each student’s progress toward meeting the Common Core standards at any time throughout the year and identify which students might need more attention.

CUE (formerly the Computer Using Educators) is a professional learning organization devoted to educational technology. Nearly 5,000 K-12 educators and administrators gathered in Palm Springs for the group’s 2014 annual conference.
