This report from National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), in partnership with Hobsons, examines how states and schools are using Individual Learning Plans (ILPs). ILPs, personalized plans developed collaboratively by students and educators to help students focus on their academic and career futures through goal setting and tracking, are increasingly being used in schools around the country. The research summarized in this report includes a review of state websites and surveys of a random sample of staff at public high schools in all 50 states. The report discusses state policies regarding ILPs and what implementation looks like at the school level. It also explores what evidence of effectiveness is available and which school staff are responsible for assessing the impact of ILPs on career and college readiness. The recommendations at the end of the report will also be of interest to educators and policymakers.
