The CCR standards anchor the document and define general, cross-disciplinary literacy expectations that must be met for students to be prepared to enter college and workforce-training programs ready to succeed. The K—12 grade-specific standards define end-of-year expectations and a cumulative progression designed to enable students to meet college and career readiness expectations no later than the end of high school.
The CCR and high school grades 9—12 standards work in tandem to define the college and career readiness line—the former providing broad standards, the latter providing additional specificity. Hence, both should be considered when developing college and career readiness assessments.
Although California did not include the CCR Anchor Standards in the standards adoption, they are the frameworks around which the standards are organized. Therefore, familiarity with the CCR Anchor Standards allows us to understand the progression of the standards across the grades.
In addition, you will see on the next page that the number of CCR Anchor Standards, as well as the strands, is consistent with the K standards. Next, find the same standard in the CCSS document.

Each panel included a mix of expertise and experience, including representatives from adult education, community colleges, career and technical training, and the military. The methodology employed was deliberative, multilayered, iterative, and evidence-based. Over nine months, panelists were asked to make reasoned judgments about the relevance of the CCSS for adults, based on where the evidence for college and career readiness was most compelling, and to revisit and verify those judgments in light of feedback and new questions. Because the goal was to determine the applicability of an accepted set of essential CCR standards, judgments about relevance and importance were made based on each standard as written. The College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education provide benchmarks aligned to the Common Core State Standards for states to consider in creating or evaluating their own adult education standards. They articulate a framework for states to employ voluntarily in strengthening their adult education programs with respect to college and career readiness. The standards were identified in response to a need expressed by adult educators to pinpoint a manageable set of the Common Core State Standards most indispensible for college and career readiness and important to adult students.
Building on the best of existing state standards, the Common Core State Standards provide clear and consistent learning goals to help prepare students for college, career, and life. The standards clearly demonstrate what students are expected to learn at each grade level, so that every parent and teacher can understand and support their learning. With students, parents, and teachers all on the same page and working together toward shared goals, we can ensure that students make progress each year and graduate from high school prepared to succeed in college, career, and life. The standards focus on core concepts and procedures starting in the early grades, which gives teachers the time needed to teach them and gives students the time needed to master them. The standards draw on the most important international models, as well as research and input from numerous sources, including educators from kindergarten through college, state departments of education, scholars, assessment developers, professional organizations, parents and students, and members of the public.
ACT College and Career Readiness Standards
The standards are empirically derived descriptions of the essential skills and knowledge students need to become ready for college and career, giving clear meaning to test scores and serving as a link between what students have learned and what they are ready to learn next. Parents, teachers, counselors, and students use the standards to:. ACT is committed to validity research. The first type of validity research ACT conducts is content validity, designed to answer the following question: Does a test measure what it aims to measure? This essentially involves the validation of the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards, which are built on a foundation of years of empirical data.
The K—5 standards on the following pages define what students should understand and be able to do by the end of each grade. The CCR and grade-specific standards are necessary complements—the former providing broad standards, the latter providing additional specificity—that together define the skills and understandings that all students must demonstrate. To build a foundation for college and career readiness, students must read widely and deeply from a broad range of high-quality, increasingly challenging literary and informational texts. Through extensive reading of stories, dramas, poems, and myths from diverse cultures and different time periods, students gain literary and cultural knowledge as well as familiarity with various text structures and elements. Students can gain this foundation only when the curriculum is intentionally and coherently structured to develop rich content knowledge within and across grades.

The K—12 grade-specific standards define end-of-year expectations and a cumulative progression designed to enable students to meet college and career readiness expectations no later than the end of high school. The CCR and high school grades 9—12 standards work in tandem to define the college and career readiness line—the former providing broad standards, the latter providing additional specificity.
CCRS set high goals for student achievement; graduating high school students who meet CCRS are prepared to pursue a college education without taking any remedial courses.
