Graduation Rate Data

Published: 9/29/2014 10:37 AM

 

The Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate data beginning with the 2012-13 school year provided an accurate graduation model that followed students from their first year in high school through their expected cohort graduation school year.

he four, five and six  year adjusted cohort graduation rates are reported at the high school, district, and State levels in the aggregate as well as disaggregated by subgroups.   For every cohort, the 4-year, 5-year and 6-year graduation rate will be calculated beginning with the 2012-13 school year. 
 
The “four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate” is defined as the number of students who graduate in four years with a regular high school diploma divided by the number of students who entered high school four years earlier adjusting for transfers in and out, émigrés and deceased students.
 
The “five-year adjusted cohort graduation rate” is defined as the number of students who graduate in five years with a regular high school diploma divided by the number of students who entered high school five years earlier adjusting for transfers in and out, émigrés and deceased students.
 
The “six-year adjusted cohort graduation rate” is defined as the number of students who graduate in six years with a regular high school diploma divided by the number of students who entered high school six years earlier adjusting for transfers in and out, émigrés and deceased students.
 
The 5-year Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate will be used in 2014 Unbridled Learning accountability calculations (20% of the Next-Generation Learners total score at the high school level). The 4-year Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate will be used to compare to the 2014 graduation rate goal that was released with the 4-year rates reported in the 2013 School Report Card.
 
Graduation data can be found in the School Report Card.
 
  • The five-year graduation rates used in accountability calculations can be found in the school report card under: Accountability Tab, Learners tab and then Graduation Rate tab. 
  • The four-year and five-year graduation rates with Disaggregated data and goals can be found in the school report card under:  Delivery Targets Tab and then Graduation Rate tab. 
  • You can also find Data Sets in the school report card.
