Transforming Public Reporting to Ensure College and Career Readiness for All
Achieve, Inc.
As states adopt and implement bold education reforms intended to dramatically increase a student's likelihood of graduating from high school prepared for college and career, there is a strong sense among many states that reporting the right data to the right people at the right time, and reporting it well, is an essential path toward meeting their college and career readiness (CCR) goals. By setting their sights on improving CCR outcomes among high school graduates, states will promote greater opportunities for individuals as well as economic growth at all levels. Timely, accessible, contextual, and coordinated data reporting in alignment with these goals--and strategies for getting there--is a critical foundation for states' CCR reform efforts. To go one step further, it can also serve as a strategic driver toward the goals. The intent of this policy brief is to clarify some concrete mechanisms by which states can gain traction, turning their aspirations for effective public reporting into reality. It first explores the current state of public reporting on CCR indicators across states, then discusses several policy mechanisms on which states could draw to advance their reporting, and finally addresses the opportunity for states to create partnerships to ignite the power of data reports.
