Closing the Expectations Gap

Achieve, Inc. undertook this survey of state-level high school reform as part of its American Diploma Project. In an effort to examine progress toward aligning high school work with the demands of higher education and the workplace, the study evaluated graduation requirements, academic standards, assessment, accountability (i.e. holding high schools accountable for their graduates’ college readiness); and data systems that can follow students longitudinally from pre-K through college.
