Technical College Readiness Evaluation
In December 2016, the Georgia State Board of Education (SBOE) approved the creation of two courses, Technical College Readiness (TCR) English and Mathematics. The courses aim to ensure high school students who lack the skills needed for admission into technical colleges attain those skills while still in high school, removing a barrier to postsecondary entry. The SBOE requested that GOSA monitor course implementation and evaluate outcomes.
In spring 2017, Hall County Schools piloted TCR English and TCR Mathematics in three high schools. In the 2017-2018 school year, Hall County, as well as additional districts across the state, will offer the courses. GOSA will monitor enrollment data and evaluate student outcomes, including ACCUPLACER performance, graduation rates, and postsecondary performance to evaluate TCR course outcomes for enrolled students across the state.
