This Data Point examines public high school graduates' postsecondary enrollment and attainment (at any type of postsecondary institution, at any level), for the class of 1992 as of 2000, and for the class of 2004 as of 2012. This Data Point uses data from two nationally representative studies of public and private high school students: the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88), which began with a sample of over 24,000 eighth-grade students, and the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:2002), which began with a sample of over 15,000 tenthgrade students, and their associated High School Transcript Studies. The Data Point reports data from these studies' public high school graduates. Causal inferences should not be made from these correlational data. It was found that: (1) Enrollment rates were higher in the more recent cohort, particularly among graduates who earned more CTE credits; and (2) Attainment rates were lower in the more recent cohort than in the earlier cohort.
