Redefining Ready! is a national initiative launched by AASA, The School Superintendents Association, to introduce new research-based metrics to more appropriately assess that students are college ready, career ready and life ready.  The initiative is a response to dismal college and career readiness scores reported by standardized test makers that fail to portray a comprehensive picture of student potential.
