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. Vol. 1 of the 2 vol. report evaluated the array of current & proposed grad. indicators. It examined the existing measures of H.S. completion & the newly proposed proxy measures. This, the second of 2 vols. which describe that effort. This vol. provides documentation of the technical work that was used to select an interim grad. rate. The analysis draws upon the student record data from 2 states to compute the true cohort on-time grad. rate for each of those states, to compute the proxy grad. measures for each of these states, & to compare the performance of each proxy indicator to that of the true cohort rate. Charts & tables.
