The College and Career Readiness Indicators Report (CCRI) has been developed through Hawai‘i P-20 in partnership with the Hawai‘i Department of Education (DOE) and the University of Hawai‘i (UH). This report presents information on how well Hawai‘i’s graduates are prepared to meet the DOE’s Vision of a High School Graduate. Indicators selected for this report are based on recommendations from Measures that Matter: Making College and Career Readiness the Mission of High Schools (http://www.achieve.org/node/79). 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.
