Riding the Storm out: Developmental Education Reform as a Key Component of Common Core Implementation. The College Board Advocacy & Policy Center Affinity Network Background Paper
Vandal, Bruce
College Board Advocacy & Policy Center
The Common Core State Standards provide a unique opening for K-12 and higher education institutions to work together to ensure that high school students are better prepared for postsecondary education. The college and career readiness assessments will provide educators the opportunities to intervene with students while still in high school to maximize the likelihood that students will be college ready. The assessments can also open the door to a more nuanced assessment system that considers a variety of variables that can help predict student success in college-level courses. In addition, the standards provide a platform for collaborative work to create clear curricular pathways so students can enter their programs of choice. To assist states with their preparations for the implementation of the Common Core State Standards and the assessments, the author offers several suggestions on how to meet the needs of students who are assessed below college ready.
