The College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) for Adult Education present a set of standards that reflect the content most relevant to preparing adult students for success in colleges, technical training programs, work and citizenship—in the areas of English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics. 

Adult ESOL programs in Massachusetts are required to use the CCR Standards for Math, and to use the Massachusetts English Language Proficiency Standards for Adult Education, which incorporate the CCR Standards and instructional shifts for ELA.
