This study evaluated if the knowledge and skills contained in the Common Core State Standards Initiative reflect what is important for college and careers. A national sample of instructors from 25 course categories in two- to four- year institutions were selected. Results suggested a positive correlation between proficiency in the Common Core State Standards and the extent of readiness students exhibit for a wide range of post-secondary courses.
