A “college and career ready” agenda has been embraced by policymakers and state leaders, but we need data systems to be able to measure and drive towards these goals. College Summit and the Data Quality Campaign (DQC) co-hosted an event on Wednesday, October 5, 2011 to discuss with congressional leaders, state representatives and local experts the demand for postsecondary data and progress states have made. View the event webcast here.
As part of the event, College Summit released a white paper “Seizing the Measurement Moment: Why Now is the Time for States to Help High Schools Get the Postsecondary Data They Need and Want,” detailing the local demand for postsecondary data and analysis, including profiles on local community efforts.
The paper reports the progress each state has made in getting data into the hands of parents, educators and policymakers and makes recommendations for all states to ensure they are aligned and making progress on their college and career-ready goals. The paper was made possible through generous support from Deloitte.
When postsecondary information is provided back to high schools, it is often referred to as “high school feedback” information. This working document captures knowledge about states’ capacity to and progress in providing high school feedback information. It is a living document and is updated regularly so stakeholders can see state progress and comparison: http://dataqualitycampaign.org/resources/details/1424
