Preparing Students for College
and Careers with Interim
Assessments
Tom Moellering, Sr. Product Manager
Why is college and career Readiness
important?
 Large percentage of students never complete high school
– 2012 U.S. high school graduation rate was 80%
– Each year, 1M kids in the U.S. fail to graduate from high school in time
 Students who drop out:
–
–
–
–
–
–
Earn $1M less over their lifetime
3x more likely to be unemployed
2x more likely to live in poverty
More likely to have poor health
More likely to be on public assistance
More likely to be single parents
*National Center of Educational Statistics

Many dropouts can be prevented
 School Performance and Engagement are
significant risk factors for school dropout
 According to a 2006 study by the Gates Foundation:
– 45% said thee started high school poorly prepared by their
earlier schooling
– 47% of dropouts said classes were not interesting
– 70% were not motivated or inspired to work hard
– Thirty-five percent said that “failing in school” was a major
factor for dropping out

Dropouts cost everyone
Each dropout costs
taxpayers $292K.
Dropouts have a
negative fiscal
contribution of $5K on
society.
Conversely, adults with
a Bachelor’s Degrees
contribute nearly $800K
to economy.

Many who go to college are unprepared
“Not including
dropouts, which
would make these
numbers even worse,
39% 12th-graders
have the math skills
needed for entry-level
college course work,
and 38% have the
necessary reading
skills.”
