Postsecondary Encouragement in Indiana: A Progress Report.
Gillie, Scott
This report summarizes indicators of progress in encouraging Indiana high school students to pursue postsecondary education and training. The report uses text, tables, and graphs to address: (1) trends in high-school seniors' postsecondary plans (as reported in the Indiana Department of Education senior intentions survey); (2) trends in postsecondary enrollment of traditional-age students; (3) trends in the postsecondary enrollment of historically underrepresented groups, African-Americans and Hispanics; (4) trends in high-school students' preparation for college; (5) trends in participation in the Indiana Academic Honors Program (a program of study recognized by all Indiana public postsecondary institutions as qualifying students for automatic admission); (6) trends in Indiana participation in the Scholastic Assessment Tests; and (7) trends in Indiana financial aid participation. Among indicators noted are the following: postsecondary participation by Indiana students has increased 29 percent in the past 5 years; most families of ninth-graders haven't yet begun or are unable to set money aside for their children's postsecondary education; college enrollments leveled off in 1993-94 and 1994-95.
