As states get ready for adopting the Common Core State Standards, many academic insiders are finding there is a lot of work to be done in order to prepare the students for the new exams. Many academic insiders have suggested that these tests are more difficult than states' previous exams.

New Hampshire recently adopted to the Common Core State Standards, and teachers are getting ready to prepare their students for the notably harder test, according to the Nashua Telegraph.

Nashua High School South will be hosting one of the five informational sessions that will teach educators about the Common Core State Standards math portion. The meeting will only focus on the math portion, but the new standards also feature an English language arts section.

Students will be scored based on what test administrators believe to be the basic academic knowledge.

The New Hampshire Department of Education reported that the state adopted the State Standards during its meeting on July 8th, 2010. The Granite State is one of 40 states to take part in the new exams.
