Presentation Transcript

  1. Challenge Create high school accountability systems that more fully reflect the goal of college and work readiness for all students

  2. What do current systems value? • “Proficiency” on tests measuring knowledge & skills students should learn by early in high school • Graduation rates • Other measures, such as attendance… • But college & work readiness rarely measured & valued

  3. Only 10 States Hold High Schools Accountable for College/Work Readiness

  4. What’s Needed? • Statewide assessments that measure college & work readiness • Additional performance measures beyond large scale, standardized tests • Accountability metrics that calculate and place greater value on college & work ready graduation rates • Incentives for schools to improve on these metrics • Supports & interventions for low performing students and schools

  5. Questions to consider • What are most promising strategies for building college & work readiness assessments into state testing systems? • What other indicators are needed, beyond assessments? • How can states put the pieces together to create a coherent system of indicators and incentives? • How should new accountability systems be phased in? • What are the capacity & resource implications if the bar is raised for schools? • What relation, if any, should there be to federal accountability ratings?

  6. Getting Smarter & Creating a Roadmap

  7. Assessments • What are most promising strategies for building college & work readiness assessments into state testing systems? • What other measures are needed beyond large scale assessments? • Performance based assessments? • Portfolios? • Senior projects? • Is there a need for more formative assessments? • What are state vs. local responsibilities?

  8. Additional indicators • Percent of students successfully completing college/work prep curriculum • Percent of students earning college credit while in high school • College going & remediation rates • Percent of students earning industry recognized credentials • Graduation rates, including incentives for drop out recovery
