WHAT WE DOTHE EDUCATION TRUST

WHO WE ARE

The Education Trust works for the high academic achievement of all students at all levels, pre-kindergarten through college, and forever closing the achievement gaps that separate low-income students and students of color from other youth. Our basic tenet is this — All children will learn at high levels when they are taught to high levels.

Advocacy to help schools, colleges, and communities mount campaigns to close gaps

Research and policy analysis on patterns and practices that both cause and close gaps

Technical assistance to schools, colleges, and community-based organizations to raise student achievement and close gaps

Access to Success (A2S) Initiative

Goal:

23 State University Systems committed to cutting access and success gaps for low-income and underrepresented minority students in ½ by 2015

slide5
The Access to Success Imperative
  • Need to produce more college graduates to compete in the global economy
  • Changing demographics demand focus on underrepresented populations in higher education
  • Current trends moving in the wrong direction in terms of real progress on access and success

A2S Activities

  • Partnership with NASH
  • Convene CEOs and liaisons to facilitate system change work
  • Convene workgroups with system representatives on key topics to identify promising practices and expert resources
  • Develop, collect, and publicly report data metrics on progress toward A2S goals annually
a2s data metrics
A2S Data Metrics
  • ACCESS: How well does the system’s entering class reflect the socioeconomic and racial/ethnic diversity of its state’s high school graduate population?
  • SUCCESS: Is there parity in outcomes between low-income and underrepresented minority students and their peers in the system?
  • ACCESS/SUCCESS: How well do the system’s degree recipients reflect the diversity of its state’s high school graduate population?
a2s metrics count the missing students
A2S Metrics Count the Missing Students
  • Include all students, not just first-time, full-time students
  • Include part-time and transfer/transition students, many of whom are low-income and underrepresented minorities
  • Report retention and success rates for low-income students and transfer/transition students
a2s data definitions
A2S Data Definitions
  • Student unit vs. aggregate data

Systems use unit record data to produce aggregate reports

  • System level data vs. institution level data

System data captures transitions/completions across all institutions

  • AA /BA cohorts vs. 2/4 year institutions

Systems report on cohorts of AA and BA seeking students across institution types

  • Transfer vs. transition students

Transition student: Students who move from an AA to a BA program within an institution/system
