Standards and Assessments. Race to the Top: Accelerating College and Career Readiness in States
Achieve, Inc.
Race to the Top (RTTT) provides states with an historic opportunity to accelerate their efforts to graduate all high school students prepared for college and careers. Internationally-benchmarked college and career readiness expectations will be the foundation for all strategies undertaken with Race to the Top funding. In fact, serious work towards adopting common, internationally-benchmarked college- and career-ready standards and assessments is a "prerequisite" for states to earn RTTT resources. Adopting common college- and career-ready standards and assessments is not enough to advance bold reform and win RTTT funding, though. States should seize the opportunity RTTT provides to align their policies and supports for students "and: teachers with the common standards and assessments so that they are truly translated into the classroom. This paper provides a specific advice and promising practices for meeting the Race to the Top challenge on standards and assessments. (Contains 1 table and 5 endnotes.)
