State Capacity to Link K-12/Postsecondary Data Systems and Report Key Indicators
Data Quality Campaign
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) provides an opportunity to produce high quality postsecondary indicators and, as available, publicly report them in ways that inform, engage, and empower communities. As first "required" in 2009's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) stimulus law, almost every state has linked its K-12 and postsecondary data systems to answer critical questions such as "What happens to students after they leave high school? Do they enroll in college? Are they prepared for college-level coursework?" Data Quality Campaign's (DQC's) research shows that most states already produce high school feedback reports providing information back to high schools and the public on how graduates fare in postsecondary institutions. This brief report presents a chart with current state capacity on key indicators to link k-12/postsecondary data systems and report key indicators.
