College, Career, and Civic Readiness: How Can a State Measure It?

This webinar is now on-demand! Watch the full event here.

Surveys of postsecondary education, workforce, and civic leaders have highlighted that in the 21st century, mastery of academic content and graduation are necessary, but not sufficient precursors for college, career, and civic success—students need other key skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, effective communication, and collaboration to excel. Rising to this higher bar necessitates new ways to measure student, teacher, school, district, and even state educational success. Fortunately, many state boards of education and other state policymakers are already making headway on meeting this challenge by redesigning accountability systems, state assessments, and taking a hard look at high school graduation requirements, among other policies.

Join NASBE on July 9 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. (EDT) as Megan Sambolt of American Institute for Research, and Kentucky’s State Board of Education Chair Roger Marcum; Associate Commissioner of Assessment and Accountability Ken Draut; and Associate Commissioner of Career and Technical Education Dale Winkler, discuss ways to measure, evaluate, and assess student readiness for college, career, and civic success. This webinar will provide an overview of research related to these measures and highlight how one leading state, Kentucky, has worked to ensure its education stakeholders are working towards a new, higher goal.
