Arizona Move On When Ready Initiative


National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE) - National Partner


World-Class Instructional Systems - Instructional Partners

Schools that participate in Move On When Ready use powerful, coherent instructional systems to ensure all students are reaching college and career readiness. Used in many high performing countries, aligned instructional systems include core courses in mathematics, English, science, history and the arts. These systems provide schools with high-quality curriculum, a focused course syllabus, rigorous curriculum-based examinations, and targeted teacher professional development.

The Move On When Ready instructional system providers approved for use in Arizona by the Arizona State Board of Education include ACT QualityCore, Cambridge International Examinations, College Board Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate.


ACT Quality Core

Most people know ACT as the nonprofit organization behind the ACT college admissions placement exam, but they are also a leader in assessment, research, and program management for education and workforce development. In QualityCore courses, teachers focus on fewer, clearer, and higher course standards, and use formative assessments to guide instruction and make targeted interventions.
