Postsecondary Encouragement in Indiana: A Progress Report.
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.
