P-16 Partnership to Improve Students' Postsecondary Mathematics Achievement
Hartman, Jenifer J.
NASSP Bulletin, v101 n1 p36-49 Mar 2017
Increasing students' academic success in postsecondary endeavors is an important goal for both high school and college institutions today. However, the standards for high school graduation and college readiness are not well aligned, and successful transition from high school to college is problematic for many students, particularly in math. This article describes a P-16 collaborative effort to examine high school math achievement in relation to college math placement and how the results informed policies and practices in both organizations.
