BJB comments on selected state standards and their draft Fordham SOSS 2010 reviews
Bas Braams Vienna, 08 July 2010
Near the end of the process the Fordham editors of the State Of State Standards (SOSS) 2010 asked me to review the proposed grades for some of the State mathematics standards, as a check for them before they went public. I reviewed their draft reviews and grades of themathematics standards of Vermont, Wisconsin, Maryland, Ohio, New Mexico and (only briefly) the Common Core. My evaluation supported the draft of SOSS; I think they gave correct grades. Anyone who cares for the details of my evaluation of the draft of SOSS for the mentioned
states can find it here. a note from Bas Braams
