Which students are not progressing toward college and career readiness?


Asking this question will help you to identify students who need targeted interventions to address achievement gaps and provide equal opportunities for future success.

Are students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) as college- and career-ready as those without IEPs?


This question will help you to assess whether students with disabilities have the same level of college and career readiness as their peers so they have equal opportunities when they transition to post-secondary education and employment. With Otus, you can flexibly group students by identified disability, 504 plan, and more to determine if there are gaps in future readiness. If the data reveals that a given population of students needs additional support, educators can add them to a college-and-career-readiness plan to track progress.
