Ryu, Mikyung, Comp.
This technical guide provides complete information on the indicators presented in "Measuring Up 2002: The State-by-State Report Card for Higher Education." The guide describes all indicators in "Measuring Up 2002," explains the methodology used to measure the indicators, and lists the sources of the data. Part 1 presents the methodology for grading states and provides information on data collection and reporting. Part 2 explains the indicators that comprise each of the graded categories. This section details the construction of each indicator: its scope, source, and computations. Part 3 provides data sources for nongraded information, some of which is provided in the print edition of "Measuring Up 2002," and some of which is posted on the online version of the report card. The nongraded information provides a context for understanding graded state performance. (SLD)
