Creating a College and Career Readiness Accountability Model for High Schools

The National Governors Association released a report recommending that states consider the following principles when designing a college and career readiness accountability system for high schools:

  • Use multiple measures to determine school and district performance in the areas of assessment, graduation, college and career readiness, and school environment;
  • Provide incentives for preparing the hardest-to-serve students for college and career, including comparing the performance of schools and districts with similar student populations; and
  • Set targets for accountability measures that are grounded in research and are realistic given past school or district performance.
