Placement and RetentionLinking to End of Fiscal Year or Student Exit

If linked to End of Fiscal Year, Then Placement is Measured:

Students exiting Q1: Employment during Q5 after exit

Students exiting Q2: Employment during Q4 after exit

Students exiting Q3: Employment during Q3 after exit

Students exiting Q4: Employment during Q2 after exit

This makes no sense from a policy or research perspective. Policy-makers do not want a complicated mixed bag of follow-up periods. Researchers time follow-up periods to treatments not accounting periods.

If linked to End of Fiscal Year, Then Retention may be Measured:

Students exiting Q1: Employment during Q7 after exit among those employed during Q5 after exit

Students exiting Q2: Employment during Q6 after exit among those employed during Q4 after exit

Students exiting Q3: Employment during Q5 after exit among those employed during Q3 after exit

Students exiting Q4: Employment during Q4 among those employed during Q2 after exit

Try explaining this to a busy policy-maker. Is this similar to how the results of any other public program is measured???

If linked to student exit, then there can be consistent follow-periods for placement and retention, making it simpler for policy-makers to understand and logical from a research perspective.

But won’t this be difficult to implement?

No! Linking to the Q of student exit can be done just once a year. It only requires a simple computer program code saying, in effect: when student exit is ___ then match with quarter ___, when student exit is ___ then match with quarter ___, when student exit is ___ then match with quarter ____, and when student exit is ___ then match with quarter ___.
