  1. Graduation & Dropout Workshop Oakland Schools Thursday, March 20, 2008

  2. Building An Understanding • Calculate graduation rate using cohort methodology • Graduation cohort established in the fall of a student’s ninth grade year via SRSD submission • Student tracked from grade to grade and district to district across the state via SRSD submissions

  3. Building An Understanding • In the Previous GAD Application: • Data extracted and presented over four SRSD submissions • Data presented in aggregate form for all grades at a participating school (typically grades nine to twelve) • Data was easily amendable • Dropout and graduation rate calculated and displayed in the application • Included a submit feature to submit building / district data

  4. Building An Understanding • In the New GAD Application: • Data extracted over thirteen SRSD submissions • Data listed at student detail level for 2007 cohort only • Records are amendable. Request for change submitted by the district and approved at ISD • Application does not show your graduation rate. • Application allows for submission by omission • No submit button to “send” data to CEPI • Whether data is changed or not, at the end of the reporting window the application is closed, data submitted to CEPI

  5. Building An Understanding • Factors of calculation: • Grad Rate = On time Graduates/Cohort • On Time Graduates: • Student records in a cohort submitted as graduates via SRSD by thirteenth submission • Students approved as extensions received an additional year to be reported as graduating and do not count against a district graduation rate

  6. The Application • Previous GAD application access transferred to Current GAD application • If you did not previously have access to the application, you will need: • A MEIS Account • Security Agreement
