The Race to the Top (RTTT) competition asks states to continue making substantial progress in the quality of their longitudinal data systems, and, significantly, to dramatically improve their ability to use longitudinal data to inform policy and practice from the classroom to the state house. Today, too few states collect, meaningfully report, and use data to inform public discourse about students' preparation for college and careers. The RTTT competition gives states committed to college and career readiness an unprecedented opportunity to build the tools to measure results, guide decision-making and investments, and provoke honest conversations about whether and how schools are on track for, meeting, or exceeding college and career readiness goals. But data alone is not enough: To foster meaningful dialogue and make continuous progress towards college- and career-ready goals, states need to make college and career readiness a central feature of their public reporting. A seamlessly integrated, accessible P-20 longitudinal data system with college and career readiness as its central driver should be a linchpin of any state's effort to maximize the impact of its RTTT strategy. These systems provide educators and decisionmakers with critical pieces of information about student achievement and school progress and are foundational to reaching states' goals of readiness and success. In most states, however, the data used to report on high school performance are not sufficient indicators of readiness for success in postsecondary education and careers. To shine a light on the progress schools and systems are making towards preparing all students for college and careers, states should generate report cards that include performance against key indicators--focusing the attention of educators and fostering greater public discourse on the importance of all students meeting college- and career-ready standards.
