Texas College and Career Readiness, 2010
National Center for Educational Achievement
This document presents the percentage of Texas students achieving the National Center for Educational Achievement's (NCEA) College and Career Readiness Targets and ACT's College Readiness Benchmarks. The key to all students graduating college and career ready is to be able to identify whether or not students, starting in elementary school, are on the path to college and career readiness. NCEA provides educators with the opportunity to monitor students' progress on this path. NCEA's College and Career Readiness Targets, developed for the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS), act as grade-level indicators of whether students are on pace to graduate from high school college and career ready. NCEA's College and Career Readiness Targets combined with ACT's College Readiness Benchmarks on EXPLORE, PLAN, and the ACT tests offer educators a system of indicators that can be used to monitor students' progress toward college and career readiness.
