College and
Career
Readiness

ACT’s Definition of College and Career Readiness
College and Career Readiness is the level
of preparation a student needs
to be equipped to enroll and succeed –
without remediation – in a
credit-bearing, first-year course
at a two-year or four-year institution,
trade school, or technical school.
www.act.org/commoncore
6
Preparation for College and Career
Prepare all students for
success, no matter
which path they choose
after graduation.
In the next decade, nearly two-thirds of
new jobs created in the U.S. will require
some post-secondary education or
considerable on-the-job training.

Analysis
Look for patterns:
 Dramatic differences from the reference group
 High percentages clustered around a wrong answer
 High percentages of omitted questions
Do any of these occur more
frequently for some domains than
others?
