Development and Use of State-Level Longitudinal Data Tools and Performance Metrics

March 2012−August 2016

CCRC partnered with the community college agencies in three states (Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia) and New York City to extend previous analyses of student progression, course-taking patterns, transfer, and completion at the college level to the state or system level. CCRC conducted research and developed and implemented data tools for use in informing state- and system-wide reforms aimed at increasing student completion and success. As part of this work, CCRC partnered with these systems to develop and field-test performance incentive systems metrics that adjust for student characteristics and other risk factors and include measures of cost efficiency.

This project was funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
