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 all students that graduated from high school with a regular diploma in the standard number of years (i.e., four years) statewide. ; Academic Year: 2009-10; Grade: N/A; Note: The percentage of all students who graduated from high school based on the state-defined graduation rate. States must include graduation rate in making high school adequate yearly progress (AYP) determinations. Until AYP determinations based on 2011-12 assessment results, states may calculate graduation rate differently, as long as the calculation represents the percentage of students that graduate with a regular diploma in the standard number of years (i.e., four years). Beginning in 2010-11, states are required to use the regulatory four-year adjusted-cohort graduation rate for reporting purposes. Beginning in 2011-12, states are required to use the regulatory four-year adjusted-cohort rate for AYP purposes. States lag the reporting of their graduation rates in the CSPR (e.g., the 2008-09 CSPR will include 2007-08 graduation rates). A dash (-) indicates that the data are not available. The symbols "> 97%" and "< 3%" indicate that the value is higher than 97 percent or less than 3 percent, respectively. A "†" symbol means not applicable. ; Source: EDFacts/Consolidated State Performance Report, 2010-11: http://www2.ed.gov/admins/lead/account/consolidated/index.html; Data Uploaded On: 11/28/2012
