Naviance by Hobsons Expands College and Career Readiness Through New Industry Framework

The College, Career and Life Readiness Framework Helps Educators Use Technology to the Fullest Potential So Students Can Reach Theirs

PALM DESERT, CA - July 17, 2018 - Hobsons, the education technology leader and company behind Naviance, today announces the College, Career and Life Readiness (CCLR) Framework. The CCLR Framework expands the definition of college and career readiness and identifies the competencies today’s students need to succeed in life.

The CCLR Framework provides a blueprint to prepare middle and high school students for success after graduation. This practical tool set helps schools and districts of all types define, measure and track success for their college, career and life readiness initiatives. The result is a purposeful approach to CCLR that drives long-term student engagement and better outcomes.

The research-backed framework outlines six competencies that students in grades 6-12 must achieve to become college, career and life ready.  Each competency outlines themes and objectives to further define success, as well as grade-specific activities to achieve each the grade-specific objectives. The framework provides guidance on key the metrics to track related to each competency.

Educators can assess the maturity of their organization’s college, career, and life readiness initiatives with a research-based diagnostic assessment and a summative assessment.

“The Naviance team is proud to be a thought leader by defining and providing the framework for what it means to be college, career and life ready,” said Kim Oppelt, Director of Education and Outreach. “We continue our efforts by providing schools and districts across the country with not only the tool set required, but the skill set and mindset to use in support of student success.”
