Affirming the Goal: Is College and Career Readiness an Internationally Competitive Standard?
ACT is continuing our commitment to college and career readiness and success for all students by releasing this first-of-its-kind research report, entitled "Affirming the Goal: Is College and Career Readiness an Internationally Competitive Standard?" This study looks at the international competitiveness of the Common Core State Standards since there has been little empirical research to determine how these standards measure up. ACT determines that our shared definition of college and career readiness is, in fact, internationally competitive.
The report answers three key questions:
1. What does college and career readiness really mean?
2. How do we know if our college and career readiness standards are internationally competitive?
3. How would the U.S. fare if college and career readiness standards were fully adopted and successfully implemented?
