A study released last week by the Brookings Institution finds the per-student costs of assessments aligned with Common Core State Standards are unlikely to rise by more than a few dollars, even if more states withdraw from the two federally funded consortia developing the tests. The assessments being developed by the consortia -- the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium -- are estimated to cost an average of $30 per student nationally, even if a few states drop out.
