What Does It Mean to be College and Career Ready?
Colleges and universities set their own standards for college readiness, at least implicitly, in their expectations for admission and placement. But this practice communicates college preparation expectations poorly and unevenly—one of the factors contributing to many students being underprepared for college-level work. Career readiness is also poorly communicated and un-systematically provided at both the K-12 and college levels. How can the new Common Core State Standards be used toboth communicate and improve college and career readiness for all students? Will Common Core-based changes produce students better prepared only for first-year courses, or more likely to succeed throughout college and into the workplace? What else is needed in order to ensure that graduates are both prepared to be life-long learners, and prepared for their lives ahead?
