College and Career Indicator

 
The College/Career Indicator contains both college and career measures which recognizes that students pursue various options to prepare for post-secondary and allows for fair comparisons across all local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools.
 
There are three levels that measure post-secondary preparedness in the College/Career Indicator (CCI): Prepared, Approaching and Not Prepared.
