Assessing high schools is as varied as the data collected on high school. The Defining a 21st Century Education report uses data from a few places that school boards should also consider using to create a more comprehensive picture of their schools’ successes, including the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), the British KS3 ICT assessment, and Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA). In the Keeping Kids in School and Better Late than Never reports, data focused on educational experiences (grades, test scores, retention rates, attendance, behavior reports) are all examined and linked to identifying potential dropouts and late graduates. In Chasing the College Acceptance Letter, the report reviews high school transcript data and college entrance exam data, and gives a sidebar telling readers where they can get this data.
