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 developed by students in collaboration with educators to support their academic and career futures through goal setting and tracking, are 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 looks at state policies and implementation at the school level. It also explores what evidence of effectiveness is available and how schools are assessing the impact of ILPs on career and college readiness.
The recommendations about ILPs at the end of the report will be of interest to both educators and policymakers. To learn more this EdSurge article provides a peak at how ILPs are being rolled out in Vermont.
