From October 22 -25, 2013, one hundred and eight state directors and state staff along with local directors from the host state of South Carolina attended the NAEPDC/NCSDAE National Training Institute in Charleston, South Carolina. 

The NTI focused on strategies for moving a state to the new National Adult Education College and Career Readiness (CCR) Standards

Below are the resources from that institute.

*NAEPDC CCR Standards Self-Assessment:  Prior to beginning a move to CCR Standards, this checklist provides a state director and her/his advisory workgroup a list of factors to assess where the state is in a standards process.

*NAEPDC CCR Standards Decision Points:  Even though every state is different, the decisions to be considered when moving to CCR Standards are similar.  The Decision Points matrix offers in the first column a listing of those decisions a state faces and in the second column examples of state colleagues who have made those decisions along with their resources.

*NAEPDC NTI Talking Points:  The NTI focused on five of the key decision points with colleagues with experience in each providing lessons learned and recommendations.  This document captures their talking points as well as links to their powerpoints, handouts and video segments.

*NAEPDC CCR Standards Planning Document: The planning document presents a simple calendar to chart out the steps in planning, implementing and evaluating a move to CCR Standards.
