Research Center to Release in December the 8th Annual High School Benchmarks Report
Report Provides Data on College Enrollment, Persistence, and Completion Outcomes
The National Student Clearinghouse Research Center will release on Thursday, December 10 the High School Benchmarks 2020: National College Progression Rates.
The report is the most relevant benchmarks that secondary education practitioners can use to evaluate and monitor progress in assisting students to make the transition from high school to college. The High School Benchmarks Report provides high schools the most updated data of their alumni regarding college enrollment, persistence, and completion outcomes.
The report covers thousands of public and private high schools from all 50 states and a majority of the 100 largest districts in the United States, including nearly 40 percent of all public high school graduates.
The High School Benchmarks 2020 report data are drawn from the Clearinghouse’s StudentTracker® for High Schools service and are presented for students from different types of high schools, such as low- versus higher-income, and low versus high minority. This enables more focused discussions, particularly about low-income and minority students traditionally not well served by higher education.
