Improving College Readiness and Success

College and career readiness is at the heart of California’s State Standards. State policymakers have emphasized the need to better align K–12 education systems with higher education to ensure a more seamless transition for young adults between high school and college, and between high school and the labor market. In this project—in partnership with the California Department of Education—we examine many aspects of these standards, including how well they correlate with measures of postsecondary success across the State’s three segments of higher education. (The partnership is funded through a research grant from the Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education to Faculty Director Michal Kurlaender, PI at UC Davis).
