My blog discusses the important and complex subjects of college completion, college success, student risk factors (for failing), college readiness, and academic preparation. I will explore the pieces of the college puzzle that heavily influence, if not determine, college success rates.
Slow Progress Toward Secondary School End of Course Exams
The Center on Education Policy
published a report on end of course exams for high school graduation.Secondary courses are better aligned to end of course exams in algebra or world history than a cross cutting skills test. But only 4 states currently use end of course exams, and 11 may rely on them for graduation in 2015. Moreover, only a few states are thinking about how to link their end of course tests to college prepardness. Much more focus is needed on these issues, but I am not sure where the momentum will come from.see www.cep-dc.org
