Brief 2: Defining College and Career Readiness

Client: Core to College Network

In this brief we outline how K-12 and higher education can create a shared definition of what college and career readiness means. We found that this shared definition often forms the basis of a broader K-12/higher education college readiness improvement agenda. The brief provides an overview of college readiness definitions, processes for their development and ideas for how they can be used.

This is the first in a series of six briefs on K-12 and higher education alignment titled K-12/Higher Education Alignment: An Action Agenda for Increasing Student Success. The series is based on our experience as the national director for the Core to College project and the experience of the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) with the College and Career Readiness Partnership. Each brief describes a different alignment challenge, practical advice for action, important resources and state examples.
