Indicators were also chosen on the basis of the accessibility of the data source and its impact on improving student readiness for the workforce or post-secondary education. Additional measures for this report will be incorporated as data becomes available. The purpose of this technical report is to provide a summary of the key readiness indicators, data sources, and other relevant information.
