What Does It Really Mean to Be College and Work Ready?

NCEE Releases New Report Cover edit 3

After two years of research, NCEE will release a first-of-its-kind study on the requirements for success in our nation’s community colleges.  Our findings are likely to surprise you.

Guided by a team of leading psychometricians, subject area experts and higher education professionals, the report breaks new ground in understanding the mathematics and English literacy knowledge and skills needed to be College and Work Ready.

Key education and policy leaders will join NCEE in a day-long meeting looking at the results of the study and its implications for school reform, the Common Core State Standards, community colleges, and work, careers and vocational education.
