  • Reporting and accountability timelines
new graduation rate
New Graduation Rate
  • US Department of Education wants comparability in graduation rates across states.
  • USED requires all states to use a new graduation rate based on a “four-year adjusted cohort” and report disaggregated results for this cohort for AYP.
  • Federal law allows states to use an extended year adjusted cohort rate as well.

Four-year Adjusted Cohort Rate

Four-year Adjusted Cohort rate

  • Students are assigned a permanent cohort year based on grade level placement at the end of their first enrollment in a WI high school.
  • The cohort is adjusted for the following circumstances:
    • New transfers to a Wisconsin public school
    • Transfers to a non-public Wisconsin school
    • Moves out of state
    • Emigration to another country
    • Death of a student

Four-year Adjusted Cohort Rate

Four-year Adjusted Cohort rate

  • Students earning regular diplomas in four or fewer years are counted in the numerator.
    • “Regular Diploma” is defined in state statute: s.118.33(1) (a) and (d), Wis. Stats.
  • What does not count as a regular diploma?
    • Other completion credentials: HSED, GED, Certificate of Attendance or Completion
    • Students who do not earn a regular diploma in the cohort timeframe, including students who reach maximum age
    • Dropouts: students not transferred to another public school or whose whereabouts are unknown

What’s different?

  • New 4-year adjusted cohort formula (beginning 2010-11):

# of students who graduate within four years with a regular diploma

divided by # of students in the 4-yr adjusted cohort

  • Legacy rate formula (in use since 2003-04) is a snapshot:

# of students who graduate with a regular diploma

divided by # of students expected to graduate

Beginning in Spring 2011, WI will report two rates:

*Guidance from USED, expected in fall 2011, may allow use of an additional, extended rate for AYP.
