Do you know what dimensions of college and career preparedness today’s schools commonly miss? In this edWebinar, learn the differences between upwardly mobile and downwardly mobile careers, as well as how to help students find and prepare for upwardly mobile careers. Dr. Andrew Hegedus introduces Conley’s four key dimensions that students must master to prepare for college and a one-hour intervention that improves college enrollment by nearly one-third.
In addition, learn how assessment can support predictions of ACT success as part of assessing a student’s academic readiness for college. He also explores how to engage students and parents in conversations about post-high school education, and how to use our NWEA’s College Explorer Tool to discover opportunities.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to middle through high school teachers and school and district leaders.
