Assessing College and Career Readiness: 2015 and Beyond

Standards-based K-12 education has refined "proficiency" at high school to focus on "college-and-career-readiness." Key efforts include the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in mathematics and English language arts and literacy--adopted by over 45 states--and the development of assessments aimed at evaluating students' "college-and-career-readiness" as defined by the CCSS. This Reidy Interactive Lecture Series features noted authorities interacting with conference participants to share and apply the latest thinking about critical issues in assessing college-and-career-readiness.

Join national experts and a group of diverse colleagues to explore how "college/career readiness" will be assessed in 2015 and beyond.
