Supplementary Analysis for "Measuring Up 2000": An Exploratory Report. National Center Report.
This report was created to generate ideas about the kinds of data that might be used to produce follow-up analyses of "Measuring Up 2000," the state-by-state report card for higher education. The analysis attempts to present report card data and related information graphically and mathematically in ways that might be useful to policymakers and higher education stakeholders. The analysis begins by depicting the grades in "Measuring Up 2000" by region in tabular and graphic form. The second section uses ratio analysis as a technique to interpret one grade relative to another, and the third section looks at two common state inputs to higher education: state appropriations and student aid. These inputs are analyzed in the context of the state grades in "Measuring Up 2000." The final section analyzed a sample state, New Mexico, using the preceding analyses. The purpose of this section is to generate discussion about the type of information the National Center might provide in order to offer state guidance for report card improvement. Six appendixes contain supplemental tables. (Contains 16 tables and 12 figures.) (SLD)
