Goals and Findings:
Progress on College Readiness
In 2008, the College Board's College Completion Agenda established the goal (.pdf/2.9MB) of increasing the percentage of 25- to 34-year-olds who hold an associate degree or higher to 55 percent by 2025. Requires Adobe Reader (latest version recommended).
To see our progress toward this goal continue, three efforts are critical:
- Increasing rigor in the nation's classrooms;
- Promoting equitable access to these rigorous academic experiences; and
- Ensuring that students develop the knowledge and skills critical for success in college and careers.
In this report, you're going to see a lot of data — data that can serve as a guidepost for our progress. But it's not all about the numbers. These charts and graphs represent the hard work and successes of students and teachers in classrooms in your state and around the country.
