State assessments, which are used to measure student achievement in reading, math, and science, are designed by each state to measure the content the state has determined appropriate for that grade and subject. As a result, both the content on the tests and achievement standards students must meet to be considered “proficient” vary widely across states, so proficiency rates should not be compared across states. Many states have also changed their standards and assessments at some point in the process of measuring their students, so it is often not possible to create a trend line that looks at changes in achievement across years, since a change could actually reflect a change in the assessment.

Through the 2009-10 school year, states were allowed to calculate student graduation rates differently, as long as the figure represents students who graduated in the standard number of years (i.e., four). Starting in the 2010-11, states converted to an adjusted cohort graduation rate, which may or may not be the same as the calculation they used in prior years. Due to the potential differences, caution should be used when comparing graduation rates across states.

For detailed information about state assessments and graduation rates, please see the state Accountability Workbooks, which can be found at: State Accountability Workbooks: http://www2.ed.gov/admins/lead/account/stateplans03/index.html

1 Description: The percentage of students from the original cohort who graduated in four years with a regular high school diploma. ; Academic Year: 2010-11; Grade: N/A; Note: The four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate is the number of students who graduate in four years with a regular high school diploma divided by the number of students who form the adjusted cohort for the graduating class. From the beginning of 9th grade (or the earliest high school grade), students who are entering that grade for the first time form a cohort that is “adjusted” by adding any students who subsequently transfer into the cohort and subtracting any students who subsequently transfer out, emigrate to another country, or die. 2010-11 was the first year that states were required to use the regulatory cohort rate, so prior year data are not necessarily comparable to the 2010-11 rates. A dash (-) indicates that the data are not available. Cell with a ">" or "<" next to the value indicate that the value has been blurred, and is greater than or less than the value listed. An "n<" means that the value has been suppressed. A "†" symbol means not applicable. ; Source: EDFacts: Tabulated from the reporting system as of September 2012; Data Uploaded On: 04/02/2014 

ID: Idaho has received a “timeline extensions” from the Department, pursuant to which it was not yet required to use an adjusted cohort graduation rate that meets the regulatory requirements for 2010-11. Accordingly, they did not submit data based on the regulatory requirements for 2010-11. Instead, they submitted data based on their previously approved methodology.
