Standards Feedback Report. South Carolina Course Alignment Project
Educational Policy Improvement Center (NJ1)
This report, prepared for the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education by the Educational Policy Improvement Center (EPIC), provides a final list of recommended college readiness reference standards to be used as part of the South Carolina Course Alignment Project (SCCAP). The purpose of these standards is to serve as a common reference point for the development of courses in English/language arts, math, and science that align between high school and college. The standards are not designed as a substitute for existing South Carolina curriculum standards, nor are they related in any way to admission to postsecondary education in the state. They will be used as a reference point by design teams that will construct the aligned courses. This draft list of college readiness reference standards was submitted to the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education, the SCCAP Steering Committee, and to additional faculty and administrators from South Carolina educational institutions, who were asked to review and comment on them. The review was completed via a web application in which each participant selected one or more of the four subject areas and the cross-disciplinary skills to review. In each subject area, respondents could agree or disagree with the inclusion of a standard and enter a comment. A total of 104 participants submitted 118 reviews. (Contains 4 tables.)
