States’ Preparation of Students for Career Readiness Surveyed in Report

How do you measure students’ career readiness? The Center on Education Policy (CEP) has released a report that explores states’ efforts to measure students’ readiness for careers. Based on a survey of career and technical education officials in 45 states and the District of Columbia, the report, Career Readiness Assessment Across States: A Summary of Survey Findings, examines state definitions of career readiness, the assessments states use, and the challenges that states face. There is also a summary, which includes related reports on states’ efforts to measure career readiness and profiles major career and technical assessments. The information is downloadable on the CEP website: www.cep-dc.org.
