Anne Arundel Community College Uses SmarterMeasure™ Learning Readiness Indicator to Enhance Student Success Rate
In 2009, Anne Arundel Community College planned to double the number of students who earn degrees, certificates, and workforce credentials by 2020. The SmarterMeasure Learning Readiness Indicator allowed the college to help students identify goals, build systems to monitor and support student progress, and identify vulnerabilities in current practices.
