Mathematics and Statistics College Board Standards for College Success

Posted by Unknown 0 komentar
The College Board has developed standards for mathematics and statistics to help states, school districts, and schools provide all students with the rigorous education that will prepare them for success in college, opportunity in the workplace, and effective participation in civic life. The College Board’s commitment to this project is founded on the belief that all students can meet high expectations for academic performance when they are taught to high standards by qualified teachers.

College Board programs and services have supported the transition from high school to college for more than 100 years. Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) courses enable students to transition into college-level study when they are ready, even while still in high school. The SAT® Reasoning Test™, the SAT Subject Tests™, and the PSAT/NMSQT® all measure content knowledge and critical thinking and reasoning skills that are foundations for success in college. The College Board Standards for College Success makes explicit these college readiness skills so that states, school districts, and schools can better align their educational programs to clear definitions of college readiness.

Preparing students for college before they graduate from high school is critical to students’ completing a college degree. Most college students who take remedial courses fail to earn a bachelor’s degree (Adelman, 2004). To reduce the need for remediation in college, K–12 educational systems need clear and specific definitions of the knowledge and skills that students should develop by the time they graduate in order to be prepared for college success. By aligning curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development to clear definitions of college readiness, schools can help reduce the need for remediation in college and close achievement gaps among student groups, ultimately increasing the likelihood that students will complete a college degree.
