    School Cohort Graduation Rates: 2013

    data.ct.gov | Last Updated 2014-09-03T15:52:52.000Z

    This dataset contains the 2013 four-year cohort graduation rates by school. The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) introduced the four-year cohort graduation rate with the graduating class of 2009. This approach was created when Connecticut and 49 other states signed an agreement with the National Governors’ Association to develop a uniform system for tracking students. The four-year cohort graduation rate is calculated by tracking an individual cohort, or group of students, from their initial entrance into Grade 9 through to graduation. The four-year cohort graduation rate represents the percentage of students who earn a standard high school diploma within four years. The calculation uses individual student-level data from the state's Public School Information System (PSIS) that school districts submitted and superintendents certified. Notes: Double plus symbol (††) denotes not applicable; Asterisk symbol (*) denotes fewer than six in a cohort is suppressed; Out-placed students are counted only in district graduation calculation; Row percentages may not add to 100 percent because of rounding; District graduation rates may not be the same as the average of the graduation rates of the number schools in that district because of out-placed students.

    CDHE - Degrees Awarded

    data.colorado.gov | Last Updated 2016-10-03T20:28:01.000Z

    The Degree File includes all students who have received a certificate, degree, or formal award approved by DHE during the report year. Also contains data on age, ethnicity, program name, and residency. Data may be perturbed. We perturb some data where the student count is small enough in areas of student achievement where someone could personally identify a student. Usually, counts of 10 or less. Row counts are shown per instance. This may lead to student counts being duplicated in some areas where a student is enrolled in multiple institutions or enrolled in multiple degree programs or awarded multiple degrees.
