EdReady is a personalized learning application from NROC that directs students, especially those at risk of math remediation, to the resources they need to be ready for college. EdReady development and refinement continues, but EdReady has already been piloted at a number of sites across the country, spanning a variety of use-cases including:
- high-school classrooms (for differentiated instruction)
- online students (including hybrid classrooms, for both advanced and remedial study)
- HS graduates matriculating to college (for assessment and improvement of college readiness)
- developmental education students in college (as stand-alone, accelerated, or co-requisite remediation approaches)

EdReady is available to anyone via a free, public site with national coverage, or via customized, institutional versions for specific populations or purposes. In all cases, EdReady offers the opportunity for appropriate educational resources, especially OER, to be surfaced for students according to their specific needs. In other words, resources are only recommended in an academic context that makes sense to each student, so much of the guesswork regarding the appropriateness and utility of discovered resources has been eliminated.

For the public version of EdReady, resources are considered for potential inclusion in the resource pool (also called the EdReady Marketplace) according to open and transparent educational, legal, and technical criteria, and we welcome suggestions from the field even as we continue to scan for new offerings as they arise. For the custom versions of EdReady, resources are also available as required by the sponsoring institution. Thus, EdReady offers a pathway for OER adoption by students, teachers, and administrators that lessens the scale-up challenge that has stymied most OER projects to date.
