Introduction
Core Content for Social Studies Assessment

What is the Core Content for Social Studies Assessment?
The Core Content for Assessment 4.1 (CCA 4.1) is a subset of the content standards in Kentucky’s Program of Studies for Grades Primary – 12. It represents the content standards that will be assessed beginning with the spring 2007 state assessment. The Core Content for Social Studies Assessment Version 4.1 represents the social studies content from Kentucky’s Academic Expectations and Program of Studies that is essential for all students to know and the content that is eligible for inclusion on the state assessment. Version 4.1 Core Content for Social Studies Assessment and the Academic Expectations provide the parameters for test developers as they design the state assessment items. These content standards provide focus for the development of the Kentucky Core Content Test (KCCT) beginning in 2007.

The Core Content for Social Studies Assessment is not intended to represent the comprehensive local curriculum for social studies assessment and instruction. It is also not the comprehensive Program of Studies for Social Studies, which specifies the minimum content for the required credits for high school graduation, and the primary, intermediate and middle level programs leading to these requirements.

The goal of social studies education is to help students become contributing, participating, and knowledgeable citizens. To achieve this goal, students must know, understand, and apply the content and concepts of the various subdomains of social studies (Government and Civics, Cultures and Societies, Economics, Geography, Historical Perspective).
