Standards Translation is provided by Academic Benchmarks (AB) as a community service, freely to the Common Core community. In a recent letter from the NGA/CCSSO to the state chiefs, CCSSO Executive Director, Gene Wilhoit says:
"...we understand that there might be multiple versions of the standards as people tried to translate the standards from the available PDF files on www.corestandards.org into workable XML, Excel, and other database formats."
Indeed, during the nearly-two-year period since the release of the Common Core State Standards in June 2010, Academic Benchmarks has been supporting the industry with machine-readable (i.e. digital) conversions of the Common Core State Standards, exactly as Mr. Wilhoit alludes.
To continue our support and to insure the considerable investment our clients and state partners already have made in deploying the Common Core State Standards digitally, we offer the translation service below.
