Elina Pierce, chair of Southeast Community College’s Pharmacy Technician program, knows the importance of admitting students to her program who possess basic skills in reading, writing and mathematics. She also understands the challenges in establishing minimum standards of preparedness.
Pierce participated in a National Assessment of Educational Progress Judgmental Standard Setting Study in early June in St. Louis. Pierce was invited to participate in the study, which was conducted by WestEd and the U.S. Department of Education. WestEd is a research, development and service agency that works with education and other communities to promote excellence, achieve equity and improve learning for children, youth and adults.
