Research into Practice: The Common Core's Three Sources for Text Complexity

The Common Core State Standards identified a three-part model for establishing the complexity of texts. This presentation will examine existing scholarship for each source-quantitative, qualitative, and reader-task-with the goal of identifying support for educators in selecting and teaching texts in ways that increase students' capacity with complex text (Standard 10). Ways in which practitioners and researchers can work together to bolster text assessment systems will be identified in the final section of the presentation.
