The Effects of High School Exit Exam Performance: New Evidence from Florida
Clark, Damon; Martorell, Paco; Yang, Muzhe
Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness
This paper presents new evidence on the effects of exit exam performance on high school persistence and completion as well as on college attendance using data on students from Florida. Specifically, they examine whether initial exit exam performance causes students to drop out of school, changes the likelihood of graduating from high school, and affects the probability of enrolling in college. They also examine how these effects vary by student subgroups such as ethnicity, prior academic achievement and socioeconomic status. (Contains 2 figures and 1 footnote.)
