College- and Career-Ready Student Outcomes Data Explorer

 
 
 
Though all states collect data on student outcomes, the measures they track differ from state to state—differences like which students are included in each indicator, which assessments are used, whether data on student subgroups are reported, and how indicators are constructed. Furthermore, the data states report are often found across a number of websites, and some states publicly report more information than others. Each of these factors makes it hard to know how well-prepared students are for their next steps after high school.
 
The College- and Career-Ready Student Outcomes Data Explorer brings the available data together in one place, with a range of indicators that measure students’ progress towards and demonstration of college and career readiness (read more about how the data is collected here and see where it is collected from here). This Data Explorer shows states’ college and career readiness data by subgroup where available, and provides insight into how different measures are constructed and which students are being counted for these indicators of achievement.
 
Find each state’s information on seven key indicators of interest below. The icons in each row show whether the state reports each measure or not. When a state has the data available, click on the icon and details and background for each indicator will pop up. Refer to the key for further guidance on each of the icons.

College- and Career-Ready Assessments
State 4-Year Graduation Rate
The adjusted cohort graduation rate (ACGR) measures the percentage of 9th graders who graduate from high school in four years or less with a regular high school diploma. Click into each state/indicator combination to view subgroup data.
College- and Career-Ready Coursework Completion
Achieve considers states’ mathematics and ELA/literacy high school graduation requirements to be at the CCR level if students are expected to complete a course of study aligned with state-adopted CCR standards, which typically includes at least three years of rigorous mathematics to learn the content of the standards – whether in traditional mathematics courses (e.g., two years of Algebra and one year of geometry), capstone experiences, or applied/technical courses with rigorous embedded mathematics – and four years of grade-level English. Click into each state/indicator combination to view subgroup data.
9th Grade on Track
This indicator reports the number of students in 9th grade on track to graduate from high school based on timely credit accumulation. Click into each state/indicator combination to view subgroup data.
College- and Career-Ready Assessments
This indicator reports the percentage of students who score at the CCR level on high school assessments anchored to CCR standards. The assessment data presented are limited to states that administer a CCR assessment aligned with their state standards in English 11/III and Math 11/Algebra II/Integrated Math III or that administer a college admissions assessment (i.e., SAT or ACT) to at least 90 percent of students. Click into each state/indicator combination to view subgroup data.
College- and Career-Ready Measures
College and career readiness measures typically include multiple measures or ways for students to demonstrate their readiness for college or career, including earning college credit while in high school (e.g. through AP, IB, and dual enrollment), completing CTE pathways or industry-recognized credentials, apprenticeships or workplace learning experiences, results on college-ready assessments, completing a college- and career-ready course of study, and demonstrating military readiness. Click into each state/indicator combination to view subgroup data.
Earning College Credit in High School
This indicator reports outcomes for two measures: the percentage of students who earn college credit while still enrolled in high school through scoring a 3+ on an Advanced Placement (AP) exam and the percentage of students who earn college credit while still enrolled in high school through dual enrollment courses. Performance or success in the courses, not just participation or enrollment, must be reported. Click into each state/indicator combination to view subgroup data.
Postsecondary Enrollment
This indicator shows the number of the state’s high school graduates who matriculate into postsecondary education. This number may include students who attend a state’s two-year and four-year systems, public and private institutions, and in-state and out-of-state institutions. Click into each state/indicator combination to view subgroup data.
