    Hello everyone!

    Inside Higher Ed has a nice article about a trend towards more holistic high school graduation standards that include critical thinking, problem solving, research, communication, decision making, group work and personal responsibility. It’s not clear how much weight would still be given to traditional factors such as academic subject mastery and standardized test scores, but policy makers are clearly hoping for a more diverse class of graduates that can be a direct pipeline into a more diverse college student population.

    It’s already moved beyond the purely hypothetical as Rhode Island has already a new diploma system and 40 high schools in California are implementing the “California Performance Assessment Collaborative.”

    Best of luck with your applications!
