A public review period to assess Smarter Balanced Career Readiness Materials is now open for teachers, higher education faculty, members of the business community, and other interested parties. Reviewable materials include a set of Career Readiness Frameworks to guide stakeholders in their interpretation of students' summative assessment scores relative to specific career goals and pathways. Smarter Balanced created these frameworks to provide a toolkit for students, parents, teachers, and counselors interested in charting students' educational paths based on the knowledge and skills they need to achieve success in their intended career.
Smarter Balanced Career Readiness Materials are available for public review until March, 28, 2014 and accessible through the Smarter Balanced website: http://www.smarterbalanced.org/smarter-balanced-assessments/#career for public review (scroll to bottom of page to see links to Career Readiness documents).
