Description
 
The increased focus on accountability in educ. has resulted in a growing interest in the accurate measurement of an on-time H.S.  grad. rate. This report evaluated the array of current & proposed grad. indicators. It is the first of 2 vol. which describe that effort. This vol. examines the existing measures of H.S. completion & the newly proposed proxy measures. This includes a description of the computational formulas, the data required for each indicator, the assumptions underlying each formula, the strengths & weaknesses of each indicator relative to a true cohort on-time grad. rate, & a consideration of the conditions under which each indicator does or does not work. Vol. 2 provides documentation of the technical work that was used to select an interim grad. rate.
