The Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) and Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) provide clear expectations for assessment, instruction, and student work. They define the level of work that demonstrates achievement of the standards, so teachers, students, and parents know "how good is good enough."
The performance standards isolate and identify the skills students need to problem-solve, reason, communicate, and make connections with other information. Assessments based on the performance standards help teachers find out which students understand the information taught and which students need further instruction.
