Taking Stock of Common Core Math Implementation: Supporting Teachers to Shift Instruction – Insights from the Math in Common 2015 Baseline Survey of Teachers and Administrators

By Rebecca Perry, Neal Finkelstein, Nanette Seago, Alberto Heredia, Sandy Sobolew-Shubin, Cathy Carroll


Math in Common® (MiC) is a five-year initiative that supports a formal network of 10 California school districts as they implement the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSS-M) across grades K–8.

In spring 2015, WestEd administered surveys to understand teacher and administrator perspectives on Common Core State Standards–Mathematics (CCSS-M) implementation. Researchers surveyed teachers and administrators in eight California school districts participating in the Math in Common (MiC) initiative.

From this survey effort, WestEd researchers were able to learn from over 1,000 respondents about some of the initial successes and challenges facing California educators attempting to put in place and support new — and what some consider revolutionary — ideas in United States mathematics education.
