Seniors' Postsecondary Plans and Scholarships School Year 2013-14. Research & Evaluation Report
Griffin, Ashley
Department of Defense Education Activity
The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) collects information on seniors' academic and career plans after graduation in the form of a postsecondary plan. The information collected consists of several categories, including attending a four-year college/university, attending a two-year/ community college, attending a vocational/technical school, seeking employment or an apprenticeship/ on-the-job training, enlisting in the military, or joining Job Corps. At the end of their senior year, students are also asked to report the scholarships, financial aid, and grant monies they have been offered as well as what monies they have accepted or are planning to accept. This report summarizes the postsecondary intentions and scholarship monies reported by students who graduated from a DoDEA high school in school year (SY) 2013-14. All analyses in this report are based on those seniors (N = 3,105) who were enrolled in a DoDEA high school as of April 15, 2014. Therefore, findings do not include seniors who may have withdrawn prior to or entered a DoDEA high school after this date. It should also be noted that the information contained in this report is self-reported by students and does not represent the absolute postsecondary status of DoDEA graduates or the totality of scholarship monies offered and accepted by students. In interpreting the data contained in this report, readers are encouraged to rely on the results of statistical tests measuring differences between groups rather than on the apparent magnitude of these differences. Some differences may appear to be large; however, they are not statistically different.
