Iowa College and Career Readiness Indicators Literature Review

This literature review from April 2018 was written by AIR experts Matthew Welch, Amy Feygin, and David English on behalf of the Midwest Comprehensive Center and the College and Career Readiness and Success Center. The brief was written for the Iowa Department of Education as it considers including indicators of student success as part of a composite index of postsecondary readiness. The brief is broken into two sections. The first introduces a framework for reviewing and selecting indicators of postsecondary readiness aligned to Iowa’s specific definition of the term “college and career readiness.” The second section provides a review of current practices and use of measures of postsecondary readiness from other states.
