How It Works:

The ICC Readiness Assessment will help you determine how your student’s development is progressing in each of the five vital skills, and the resulting Readiness Report will provide insight on where to focus next.

Each section was developed by experts in the vital skills, those who have coached and taught thousands of students in these competencies.

We welcome you to complete the assessment for all your students – there’s no limit to this free tool! Please note that the assessment was developed with middle school and high school students in mind, and your report will consist of suggestions appropriate for that age group.
