There’s going to college, and then there’s going to college ready to succeed. At Pearson, we support college readiness initiatives to improve achievement and retention and move students quickly into a successful college experience. The focus starts with assessing students’ current state, and moves them forward using personalized learning based on continual assessment.
Pearson has a strong investment in preparing students for the world outside their high school classroom walls. We have provided large-scale assessment services in more than half of US states, as well as for the US Department of Education, the College Board, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, and the vanguard 15-state American Diploma Project Assessment Consortium led by Achieve. We also developed the new version of the General Education Development (GED) exam and support the comprehensive assessment system consortia, including PARCC and Smarter Balanced. No other company in the education industry has our wealth of experience, knowledge, resources, and solutions that together provide the support needed to make personalized learning become a reality for all stakeholders.
