Measuring the Education Pipeline: Common Data Elements Indicating Readiness, Transition and Success
The Data Quality Campaign (DQC) has identified a common set of data that capture students’ progress through the education pipeline at three key transition points: high school readiness, high school success/postsecondary readiness, and postsecondary and workforce success. For each of these transition points, key questions to be addressed by policymakers and related data elements have been identified along with conversations you need to have to make sure that a complete data system is in place to answer these questions. These questions are by no means comprehensive and are meant to be a starting point for conversation. States should work with key stakeholders to identify additional questions that would address their specific needs.
