November 8, 2017

Time: 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 pm (Central Time)

Location: Webinar

Description: In 2009, New Mexico adopted more rigorous high school mathematics and science course requirements as well as a new graduation exam. Join REL Southwest for a webinar on high school students’ changes in advanced course completion and graduation rates since the new graduation requirements were implemented. This webinar will provide a brief overview of each report. Jill Walston, Ph.D., will provide an overview of New Mexico Students’ Graduation Exam Participation and Course-Taking as Graduation Requirements Changed: 2011–2015, followed by David Rogers who will present the applications and implications of those findings. Eric Booth will cover Advanced Course Completion among Four-Year Students in New Mexico High Schools with Patricia Jiménez-Latham providing a reflection on the implications of the report’s results. Additionally, Ginger Stoker, Ph.D., will then highlight need for the research, the research questions and survey of an upcoming report that studied grade 9 students’ perceptions of their noncognitive skills and high school environments and how those perceptions relate to students’ academic success in grade 9.
