Achieve and Education First Release Common Core State Standards Tool to Assist States in Implementing the CCSS  (March 2012)
Self-Assessment Tool

http://www.parcconline.org/CommonCoreImplementationRubricTool
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) provide states for the first time a common platform on which they can collaborate and compare achievement, and students from coast to coast will be held to standards designed to prepare them for college and careers. But success in each state will hinge on implementation: strategies used to improve instruction in every classroom, tiered supports provided to all students, policy changes to promote coherence and alignment, and commitment to building and maintaining widespread understanding of and support for the new standards. To assist states in gauging the strength of their implementation plans and to illustrate how to improve them, Education First and Achieve have partnered on the development of a “Common Core State Standards Implementation Rubric and Self-Assessment Tool.” This tool sets a standard for a strong state role, provides examples to help state leaders, and profiles some promising state approaches.

How Data Can Forecast Future Struggles or Success For Students  (February 2012)
Report

http://tinyurl.com/7o95cv4
“Education Week” has published “How Data Can Forecast Future Struggles or Success For Students.” School districts collect information on their students, and many districts build data systems to organize that information, but some have systems mature enough to use complex analytics to predict which indicators mean students may go off track down the line, either not graduating or not being ready for college graduation. North Carolina’s Charlotte-Mecklenburg school district, for instance, records habits and grades of elementary school students, making a “risk-factor scorecard” to help spot children at risk of dropping out in a decade, then deploying resources to help them change course. Without organization, data can be overwhelming; but with organization, that knowledge can be used to better help students.

 

Is Credit Due?  (January 2012)
Report

http://tinyurl.com/8a8rwzr
“Credit Recovery Programs: Full Report,” from the Center for Public Education, examines credit recovery programs, which give students who have fallen behind the chance to “recover” credits. There is no federal definition of credit recovery, although credit-recovery classes are supported by several government funds. The report asks introductory questions: Who is taking credit recovery programs? How far behind are the students taking them? Do they catch up, or continue to fall behind? When had they started falling behind? What is the failure rate for credit recovery classes as compared to traditional classes? How do students who re-earn missed credit fare on statewide exams, compared to students who pass the first time? How do students who earn diplomas after credit recovery fare in postsecondary education or employment? And how does this compare to available data on GED recipients, traditional graduates, and dropouts?

 

Maximizing the College Choice Process to Increase Fit and Match for Underserved Students  (January 2012)
Brief

http://tinyurl.com/7pyv9ct
Gaps in college enrollment and completion rates for underserved students are partly due to attending postsecondary institutions that are not a “good match” for their social, academic, and financial needs. Thus, these students are less likely to perform well and earn a degree. Gauging this match is part of the complex and often confusing college choice process, requiring that students and parents be knowledgeable about selecting an institution that is well-suited to their needs. In a new brief, “Maximizing the College Choice Process to Increase Fit & Match for Underserved Students,” the Pathways to College Network, along with the National College Access Network (NCAN), synthesizes research on the college choice process for low-income, first-generation, and minority students. Available in pdf (367 KB, 11 pp).
