RESOURCE OF THE WEEK
A new data explorer on Achieve’s Graduating Ready website dives into student outcomes and college and career readiness across the United States. The explorer compiles publicly-available state-reported data on student outcomes on eight different indicators of college and career readiness – including graduation rate, assessment proficiency, AP and dual enrollment, postsecondary enrollment, and more. The project shows that there remains much room for improvement in states’ public reporting in terms of breaking data down by student subgroups, reporting it in a timely manner, and in how students are counted. Check it out to see the information your state reports – and doesn’t.
