READY Accountability Model Results

Effective with the 2012-13 school year, the State Board of Education adopted the READY Accountability Model which replaced the ABCs of Public Education. At the same time North Carolina made the transition to new assessments aligned to college and career ready content standards. The 2012-13 school year is the baseline for the new assessments’ data and the accountability indicators’ data. The performance results are reported with growth and targets (federal and state). The READY Accountability website provides detailed reporting at the state, district and school level. For more details regarding the accountability model please see the documents below.
