1 Description: The percentage of all students who graduated from high school based on an average freshman graduation rate defined by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). ; Academic Year: 2009-10; Grade: N/A; Note: The percentage of all students who graduated from high school based on an average freshman graduation rate defined by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The Averaged Freshman Graduation Rate (AFGR) is a calculation created by NCES to provide a common metric for calculating a four-year on-time graduation rate across all states. It is a proxy measure for a true cohort longitudinal graduation rate. The AFGR is the number of regular diploma recipients in a given year divided by the average of the membership in grades 8, 9, and 10, reported 5, 4, and 3 years earlier, respectively. For example, the denominator of the 2008-09 AFGR was the average of 8th-grade membership in 2004–05, 9th-grade membership in 2005–06, and 10th-grade membership in 2006–07. Ungraded students are prorated into these grades. Averaging these three grades by NCES provides an estimate of the number of first-time freshmen in the class of 2005–06 in order to estimate the on-time graduation rate for 2008–09.
