Mokher, Christine; Jacobson, Lou
CNA Corporation
The Florida College and Career Readiness Initiative (FCCRI) is a statewide program designed to assess the college readiness of high school students in 11th grade, and for those assessed as not college-ready, to provide instruction in the 12th grade that will lead to their college success. The assessment used is the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT), which includes math and reading/writing components. This report describes feedback CNA Corporation obtained during the 2013/14 school year about the strengths and weaknesses of the FCCRI and ways to increase its effectiveness, particularly as it relates to improving those 12th grade college readiness and success (CRS) courses. This feedback was obtained through a survey of 109 CRS course teachers in 89 schools and 33 districts; site visits to six school districts, where the authors nterviewed 24 CRS teachers in 12 schools, 11 high school counselors, and seven district curriculum specialists and observed eight CRS classes; and reviews of essays from 329 CRS course students. They also interviewed a mix of 36 administrators and instructors at six nearby state colleges. [This report was written with Caitlin Ahearn, Jen Atkin, Michael Flory, Jennifer Lansing, Juliana Pearson, James Rosenbaum, and Christopher Sun.]
