The ninth annual High School Exit Survey was administered online to seniors in every AISD high school during Spring 2011. In total, 3,793 seniors completed the survey, for an adjusted response rate of 87.3 percent.
This report uses the High School Exit Survey as a vehicle to explore explanations for the consistent postsecondary enrollment gap between Hispanic seniors and students of other races/ethnicities.
The High School Exit Survey was administered online to seniors in every AISD high school during Spring 2010. In total, 3,574 seniors in the Class of 2010 completed the survey, for a response rate of 87.9 percent.
This report presents postsecondary enrollment for AISD’s Class of 2011 during the year after high school graduation. Since 2002, AISD postsecondary enrollment has increased incrementally, from 62% to 68%.
This report compares employment and earnings outcomes of 2013 graduates with and without industry certifications and whether graduates with certifications worked in a related field. The supplemental technical report describes the methodology.
Postsecondary Education and Employment Outcomes for Career and Technical Education Graduates in the Class of 2013
Career and Technical Education (CTE) graduates appeared to enroll in postsecondary institutions and join the workforce at rates similar to those of other graduates.
The CTE program was more cost-effective in 2013–2014 than it was in 2012–2013, despite a lower college readiness rate and an increase in the per student cost from the previous year. This was CTE’s third year of improvement in cost-effectiveness.
The cost-effectiveness of the CTE program continued to improve in 2012-2013. The percentage of college-ready CTE seniors increased over the previous year, and expenditures declined. Seniors’ college readiness rates did not differ by CTE status.
This report assesses whether significant differences existed in the postsecondary enrollment, employment, and earnings of 2011 graduates, based on their CTE participation, industry certification status, and eligibility for articulated college credit.
Compared to 2010–2011, the cost-effectiveness of the CTE program improved in 2011-2012. Also, CTE may be more successful than the regular curriculum at achieving the effect of college readiness among Hispanic and economically disadvantaged students.
