Conley Readiness Index reports can be used by advisors, faculty or anyone who interacts with learners to:
Yes, Dr. Conley’s Conley Readiness Index research methods included comprehensive surveys, interviews, focus groups, longitudinal studies, statistical analyses, meta-analyses, correlations of GPAs with SAT scores and college acceptance rates, and exhaustive literature reviews from a range of social science disciplines. From this base of data, the Conley Model describes 41 actionable “aspects” (also known as objectives/outcomes/skills) upon which educators and learners can focus to improve readiness and prepare for college and career success. These “aspects” are organized into the “Four Keys to College and Career Readiness” (Think, Know, Act, Go) that has been used by national organizations such as The College Board and the International Baccalaureate®, and by numerous states and school districts. CRI offers Pre- and Post-Assessment.

Knowing whether a learner will succeed in college requires requires a holistic understanding of strengths and weaknesses. Conley Readiness Index puts the learner at the center in measuring four key skill areas. It provides a holistic picture so faculty, advisors, etc., can identify which learners need support and increase the likelihood that those learners persist. The reporting and recommendations are provided in Student and Educator Reports.
Yes, Conley Readiness Index measures cognitive skills, as well as noncognitive skills.
Yes, Conley Readiness Index helps inform readiness for learning by assessing specific behavioral qualities such as Key Cognitive Strategies, Key Content Knowledge, Key Learning Skills and Techniques, and Key Transition Knowledge and Skills (ie. communication, problem formulation, teamwork, and more). These factors are important predicting the success of learners engaged in self-directed learning and those who work in a digital environment, especially adult learners and those with multiple roles and responsibilities.
Accessibility and achievement go hand in hand. We need to eliminate any barriers that hinder a learner’s opportunity to learn or opportunity to demonstrate that learning. We are committed to access for persons with disabilities as part of the fabric of our learning materials, our development processes, our innovation efforts, and our employee culture. We are also committed to providing clear and straightforward statements on the accessibility of our products, so that our customers can plan appropriately.

Conley Readiness Index is designed to be flexible to meet institutional needs. Anyone can coordinate the assessment within our MyLab course functionality and robust reporting features.
Conley Readiness Index is an online assessment, meaning that learners can take it in the privacy of their own homes, in a computer lab, etc. While there are minimum hardware and system requirements, there is no need to purchase additional hardware to administer the assessment.
Conley Readiness Index was intentionally designed to be incorporated as a diagnostic tool for any initiative that requires self-assessment of college and career readiness.It can be integrated into FYE programs or orientation. You can also use it for Summer Bridge programs, counseling and advising sessions, or with employees already on the job looking to upskill.
Conley Readiness Index can be used as part of test administration, course placement and institutional research that evaluates antecedents of student success. You will receive highly specified data files designed for institutional download and manipulation which include learner aspirations you may not otherwise collect. This will allow you to conduct your own research.
Data from Conley Readiness Index can be exported into spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel® so you can evaluate data in conjunction with other learner information and advising system reports.
