Education Policy & Practice

Archive for December 1st, 2009

From Chicago:  The Consortium on Chicago School Research (CCSR) at the University of Chicago has released nearly 100 individualized school reports that reveal which Chicago high schools have made progress towards getting freshmen on-track to graduate. The customized reports analyze how freshmen at each school performed on crucial academic measures and how that performance has changed over time.  Previous CCSR research has shown than freshman year performance predicts whether students will graduate from high school. The reports allow educators to identify those students most at risk of dropping out and to evaluate whether past intervention efforts have been successful.

The freshman reports are the first product produced by CCSR’s Data Practice Collaborative, which brings intensive research and data support and improvement assistance to school reform networks throughout Chicago.

Here is a sample report for TEAM Englewood Academy, where it is reported that 60% of freshmen were on track to graduate in 2007-2008 compared with 86% on track to graduate in 2008-2009.
