|REL 2015081||What predicts participation in developmental education among recent high school graduates at community college? Lessons from Oregon
This study examines the extent of developmental education participation among Oregon high school graduates students who attend community college and the relationship between high school experiences and subsequent developmental education course-taking. An analysis of state and national data from more than 101,000 Oregon public high school graduates who enrolled in the state’s community colleges shows that 65 percent of high school graduates took at least one developmental education course. Mirroring findings from across the country, the study also finds that students who started at lower levels of developmental education were less likely to stay in college and earn a degree. Finally, the study shows that individual high school academic achievement and enrollment in certain dual-credit courses decreases developmental education course-taking. Overall, the findings emphasize the need to target academic underpreparedness at the high school level and to strengthen partnerships between high schools and colleges in addressing this issue.
|NCES 2014364||Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:2002) Third Follow-Up Data File Documentation
This manual has been produced to familiarize data users with the overall Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:2002) design.

Additionally, this document provides information that will support research and policy analyses. The National Center for Education Statistics hopes that analysts will find that the ELS:2002 data are organized and equipped in a manner that facilitates users’ straightforward production of statistical summaries and analyses of the ELS:2002 youth cohorts as they embark on the transition from high school to postsecondary education and to the labor market, and assume yet other roles that serve as markers of newly achieved adult status.

|NCES 2009064||High School Dropout and Completion Rates in the United States: 2007
This report builds upon a series of National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) reports on high school dropout, completion, and graduation rates that began in 1988. The report includes discussions of many rates used to study how students complete or fail to complete high school. It presents estimates of rates for 2007 and provides data about trends in dropout and completion rates over the last three and a half decades (1972-2007) along with more recent estimates of on-time graduation. Among findings in the report was that among reporting states in 2006, the averaged freshman graduation rate (AFGR) was 73.2 percent. The rate provides an estimate of the percentage of public high school students who graduate with a regular diploma 4 years after starting 9th grade. The report also shows that students living in low-income families were approximately 10 times more likely to drop out of high school between 2006 and 2007 than were students living in high-income families. In October 2007, approximately 3.3 million civilian noninstitutionalized 16- through 24-year-olds were not enrolled in high school and had not earned a high school diploma or alternative credential.
