New Webpage and Blog Posts Provide Overview of Measuring Student Success in IPEDS

  • by AIR

NCES has recently published a webpage providing information on the similarities and differences between the three IPEDS surveys components primarily focused on measuring student success: Graduation Rates (GR), Graduation Rates 200% (GR200), and Outcome Measures (OM). The webpage is designed for individuals new to IPEDS and for those seeking information about how these survey components are interrelated. The webpage is available from the “Other Resources” section of the Survey Component pages within the Use-the-Data page (https://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/use-the-data/survey-components), and also at: https://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/use-the-data/measuring-student-success-in-ipeds.

NCES has also recently shared a series of blog posts on this topic, including these:
