for Education Policy, Research and Improvement is tracking
1993-94 Florida public high school graduates over time as
they enroll in, advance through, and graduate from the state’s
community colleges and universities and enter the workforce.
To date, the Council has followed this group through spring
2002, or eight years after high school graduation. Results
from this project add to our understanding of:
- Differing academic and demographic profiles of students
who enroll in various types of community colleges and
- Differing attendance patterns of students in these institutions;
- Factors that contribute to postsecondary enrollment, progress, and completion – particularly for
students enrolled in public community colleges and universities.
The Council developed a statistical tool that estimates the
percent chance of bachelor’s degree completion for a variety
of student profiles and attendance scenarios. Different chances
for degree completion are generated depending on the scenarios
you select. Results are based on the performance of 1993-94
Florida public high school graduates in Florida public community
colleges and universities over an eight-year period.
The statistical model using student and enrollment characteristics was developed to predict the chance of bachelor's degree completion. Results are provided in this web application for the likelihood/chance of completion over a period of five to eight years.
