How States are Making Career Readiness Count: A 2016 Update

Tuesday, May 3, 2016Printer-friendly version

As states continue to evolve and implement their accountability and public reporting systems in 2016 and beyond, they have an opportunity to select indicators that inform continuous improvement, guide decisions about resource allocation, inform policies, capture progress, and factor into accountability determinations. Achieve and Advance CTE have partnered to release a status update on states’ use of career-ready indicators in their public reporting and accountability systems, including highlights from several states at the forefront of this work. The brief includes considerations for using the indicators, appendices that provide details on how states define the indicators they use in their public reporting and/or accountability systems (through accountability formulas and bonus points or rewards), and a glossary that defines key terms.
