College Credit while in High School: A Key Measurement of College and Girl in LibraryCareer Readiness

Stating that existing performance measures do not indicate whether a student is ready to succeed in college or careers, the National Governors Association (NGA) in a new policy brief has called for all states to report on five key measures. Among these is the percentage of students obtaining college credit or a career certificate in high school.

The other four measures are:
  • The percentage of students completing (or on track to complete) a college- and career-ready course of study
  • The percentage of students demonstrating proficiency on "anchor" assessments
  • The four-year cohort graduation rate
  • The percentage of traditional, first-year students enrolling in remedial coursework at a postsecondary institution
The Policy Brief, Setting Statewide College- and Career-Ready Goals [1], underscores the increasing importance of Stark County initiatives, such as high school based dual credit that enable students to obtain college credit while in high school. The Stark Education Partnership will soon release a new report, The Impact of the Continuing Growth of High School Based Dual Credit in Stark County, Ohio that will outline the explosive growth of dual credit during the 2009-10 academic year.

Members of NGA, founded in 1908, are the governors of the 50 states, three territories and two commonwealths.
