Educational Improvement in California
Can California eliminate barriers to student achievement? The educational success of California students—especially those attending public schools and community colleges—has been a significant focus of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation for nearly 10 years. As part of this work, the Foundation develops a set of priorities for its investments and chooses outcome measures to monitor. MPR Associates Inc., in partnership with The RP Group and CalPASS, has compiled and analyzed all relevant data to produce the measures reported on this website. The measures are widely recognized as being the best student success indicators with available data.
Indicators of Progress
With simple navigation, you’ll find indicators of college readiness among 11th- and 12th-graders as measured by assessments and course taking, the high school graduation rates of 7th- and 9th-graders, college enrollment rates, the progress of underprepared California community college students (CCC), the interim milestones of CCC students who don’t complete, and the completion and transfer rates of those who do.
