President Ahrash N. Bissell highlights various community milestones: one million students (and counting) have benefitted from using EdReady; we've earned SOC 2 Type II (security) and WCAG 2.1 AA conformance (accessibility) certifications; and we've partnered with UPchieve, an organization that is democratizing student access to academic support.
Dr. Rosslyn R. Knight recently published Maricopa Community College District data that demonstrate that EdReady has significantly increased the number of students of color who were able to place into college-level math and English courses.
Join us as we examine strategies for increasing success among nontraditional students of color in online (and hybrid) learning environments. Based on the lived experiences of students who successfully completed developmental and college-level courses, the Maricopa Community College model for ensuring college readiness illustrates the importance of collaboration among administrators, faculty, and staff to create success for all students.
Ivy Tech Community College, the nation’s largest singly accredited statewide community college system, accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, was awarded the inaugural Council on Accreditation of Two-Year Colleges (CATYC) Innovation Award for their Knowledge Assessment Initiative, powered by EdReady.

Texas College Bridge was launched as a response to a growing college-readiness problem further aggravated by COVID-19. Partners discuss the evolution of this growing college-readiness effort and consider how secondary and postsecondary education leaders can use this work as a model for impactful programming, tailored to local populations and needs.
Get your creative juices flowing with a fast-paced tour of both emerging and established models for summer programming that will help students prepare for a successful start to the 2021-22 academic year. We explore community-based, STEM-focused programming, secondary and postsecondary partnerships, supporting Dakota Promise scholars, and an FYE (first-year experience) initiative.
‘Remediation’ requires acceptance of a very particular model of knowledge-acquisition and mastery, coupled with a set of policy assumptions around the pace at which that model plays out among our student populations. Despite the fact that these assumptions have been well disproven, logistical challenges seemed to limit options for improvement. However, things have changed, and we are seeing positive impacts from capable technologies, supportive policies, and a renewed emphasis on equity.
With accountability measures now extending beyond high-stakes assessments, many schools are uncovering new ways of identifying gaps and accelerating gains, as they work to equitably level the playing field for all learners. Hear how leaders from resilient schools are addressing 'learning loss'.
President Ahrash N. Bissell highlights how the process of continuous, formative assessment, with an emphasis on improving knowledge and skills (as opposed to simply flagging students as deficient), has historically been dismissed as too difficult or impractical and how that sentiment is changing.
This spring, member survey respondents surfaced that SEL (social-emotional learning) tools and tactics are a top priority. To answer this need, we dug into the Center for Urban Education’s recent talk, How to Express Care with a Focus on Racial Equity.
To highlight how members shape our cyclical development priorities, we launched the WHY (We Heard You) initiative. WHY communications highlight significant function and feature updates, with an emphasis on what these improvements mean to you and your students.
