About the New Mexico Standards Based Assessment (SBA)

What is the New Mexico Standards Based Assessment (SBA)?

State Testing Information for New Mexico

Portions of the following material were taken from the New Mexico Department of Education website. Please see our links and source sections at the bottom of the page for more details and references.

New Mexico Common Core State Standards

New Mexico, 45 other states, and the District of Columbia have adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for public schooling, establishing new guidelines for both teachers and students.

The New Mexico Common Core State Standards are a different approach to learning, teaching and testing that engenders a deeper understanding of critical concepts and the practical application of that knowledge. Developed over many years, tested, and proven to be effective, these updated standards prepare students to be more ready for college and competitive in both national and international job markets.

New Mexico Common Core State Standards (NMCCSS) will be phased-in over three years and in full effect by 2015.
