The 2011 edition of "Minnesota Measures: Report on Higher Education Performance" reflects a new approach to reporting on the effectiveness of postsecondary education within the state. The report covers key measures of postsecondary effectiveness as in the previous three editions of the report but is grounded in the students' experience with a revised report structure, increased trend analysis, and additional context for the indicators. Future editions will also include an issue-focused essay that utilizes the data within the report with expanded context. The report is grounded in the students' experience moving through postsecondary education and falls into three major sections: Preparing for and Entering College, During College, and Outcomes of College. The Preparing for and Entering College section covers students' readiness for postsecondary education and information on where and how they enroll, what kind of financial support they receive, and what kinds of costs they face as beginning postsecondary students. The During College section details students' programs of study; whether they stay enrolled, transfer, or leave college; information on how students meet the costs of attendance through aid, work, and loans; and measures of their learning and engagement during their postsecondary education. The Outcomes of College section addresses how many students graduate from college, what kinds of employment they attain, how ready they are for further academic and professional study, their success in pursuing licensure and certification, and their loan burden and loan default rates. Each section has a brief overview with key findings, and each chapter leads with bulleted highlights. Appended are: (1) Definitions and Terms Used in the Report; and (2) Data Sources Used in the Report. Individual sections contain footnotes.
