College Board, Slides presented at the College Board National Forum (Miami, FL, Oct 26, 2012)
There are many changes occurring in higher education, and often it is difficult to see trends nationally. In this presentation, experts working with national data present trends in higher education from a forward-looking perspective. Senior researchers from the College Board provide trends using College Board SAT and AP data, as well as new research around Net Price Calculators. The director of the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems Information Center provides information from national data systems that can help higher education policymakers and analysts. The research director of the National Student Clearinghouse offers trends in enrollment and persistence, with a special focus on transfer students. [The following slide presentations are presented within this slide deck: (1) Landscape of Higher Education: Net Price (Greg Perfetto); (2) The Changing Landscape of How We Understand Postsecondary Pathways--With a Focus on Transfer Students and Persistence Anywhere (Don Hossler); and (3) The College Completion Agenda: From "Education for Education's Sake" to Return on Investment and Gainful Employment (Patrick J. Kelly).
