Readiness for College: College-to-School Reporting in the SREB States.
Creech, Joseph D.
This publication reports on the extent and usefulness of information provided to high schools by colleges on the college readiness of freshmen attending college in states covered by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). The opening section notes the usefulness of college to school reporting, the importance of students arriving at college ready to do the work expected of them, and the difficulty of developing good information exchange efforts. The following section describes the current state of college to school reporting noting that the frequency and quality of the reporting varies greatly from institution to institution. It also notes that SREB states differ in the ways they gather and report information. The next section offers three examples that illustrate the differences in both the kinds of information provided in college-to-school reports and in the way states and institutions report information. The examples are Tennessee, North Carolina, and Louisiana which currently provide information about the college success of recent high school graduates. A final summary section suggests eight qualities of a successful college readiness reporting program. (JB)
