Was the process for developing Common Core State Standards different than other standard development processes?

No. Standards have always guided the development of curriculum. Historically, in Missouri, standards have been developed by educators, administrators, teachers, business representatives, and parents, following a study of the most recent and relevant research. The Common Core State Standards were developed following the same process. The primary difference was in the membership of the team. The Common Core Standards team had members from a variety of states.
