Overview

The project goal is to develop and field test strategies to help all students achieve success in high school mathematics as measured by the ACT. This goal will be accomplished by:

  • Increasing counselor, teacher, and administrator awareness of college readiness standards and work keys information.
  • Providing teachers with strategies to align ACT college readiness standards to the Kentucky Program Studies.
  • Empowering teachers with specific ideas that can be used to raise student performance on summative assessments (e.g., ACT, PLAN, EXPLORE).
  • Developing and using strategies specifically aimed at increasing capacity of special needs students to know and do the mathematics outlined by ACT, ADP benchmarks and Kentucky Program of Studies.
  • The long term goal is to reduce the mathematics achievement gaps in participating middle and high schools as they increase their understanding of Algebra and Geometry concepts as measured by the ACT and KCCT.
