ACT National Curriculum Survey[R] 2012: Policy Implications on Preparing for Higher Standards
ACT, Inc.
Every three to five years, the ACT National Curriculum Survey[R] asks educators about what they teach (or don't teach) in their courses and how important they feel various topics in their discipline are for students to know to be successful in these courses and in future coursework. The survey also asks educators for their opinions on educational topics of current interest, such as the college readiness of their students or the implementation of improved standards, such as ACT's College Readiness Standards or the Common Core State Standards. The National Curriculum Survey is a critical step in the process used to build and regularly update a valid suite of ACT assessments that is empirically aligned to college readiness standards. The survey helps to inform the test blueprint for the assessments. This policy report highlights the findings of the survey, describes in detail the findings leading to the implications, and offers policy recommendations suggested by the findings and the implications. Description of Survey Sample and Process is appended. (Contains 10 figures, 1 table, and 4 footnotes.)
