Grad Cohort Reports
Earlier today, a new version of the Graduation Collection (FY18) was released. Although this collection is closed for new submissions, LEAs can review the Level 2 Reports in the data collector (by clicking the show closed collections checkbox) to view the many new columns added to the grad cohort reports.
 
These new columns will help districts aggregate the students in many ways to see the impact on their grad rate. For example, districts can use the new demographic columns to aggregate by subgroup. The other new columns can be used to aggregate students by how the pathway used to meet graduation requirements. These new PTHWY columns are based on the GRAD_COHORT reports distributed through the Data Collector under Received Files.
 
Additional demographic columns include:
  • DISAB_CNDTN_FLAG,
  • DISADV_FLAG,
  • LEP_FLAG,
  • FOSTER_FLAG, and
  • HMLESS_FLAG.
Additional helpful columns have been added including:
  • EOC_PTHWY_FLAG,
  • ACT_SAT_PTHWY_FLAG,
  • WORK_KEYS_INDST_CRED_FLAG,
  • FY18_ADTNL_GEN_PTHWY_FLAG,
  • FY18_ADTNL_CTE_PTHWY_FLAG,
  • SSID_CHANGE_OR_DEACTIVATE_FLAG,
  • OVERID_FLAG,
  • MET_BY_ALT_ASESMNT_FLAG, and
  • MET_BY_IEP_EXMPT_FLAG.
