Practical College Readiness Benchmarks

What does it mean to be college-ready? This broad question is something that has been critically looked at, researched, and talked about since the inception of college. For students who learn differently, identifying concrete benchmarks may be difficult due to the individualized programming often provided through special education.  More so, schools, parents, and students need to look beyond traditional academic benchmarks and explore areas such as self-awareness, executive functioning, emotional regulation, and independent living skills.

 

This session provides clear benchmarks to evaluate holistic readiness, while also providing actionable steps students can take to adjust to college life.
