BOR launches online dashboard tracking student transition
The South Dakota Board of Regents recently launched an online version of their annual High School Transition Report, which provides a breakdown of the academic progress of first-year students enrolled in a BOR institute on an individualized district basis.
The High School Transition Report Dashboard provides a break down by district on the academic production of students – from 2010 through 2013 – in three categories: incoming students, first-year outcomes and multi-year trends.
The “incoming students” tab on the dashboard highlights a district’s graduates, by year, enrolled in each BOR institute, the admission requirements met, academic distinctions and ACT mean scores and benchmark attainment.
The dashboard’s “first-year outcomes” tab covers the percentage of freshmen placed in remedial courses, the outcomes of first-year students in remedial courses based on GPA and credits completed and the percentage of students retained at a BOR institute for their second year, which provides a comparison between the district and the statewide average.
“Multi-year trends” is the final tab on the dashboard and it focuses on the average GPA and credits completed by first-year students from 2010 to 2013 and allows districts to track the number of students in a variety of categories, including those who received the opportunity scholarship, ACT benchmarks met, and remedial courses enrolled in, over the same four-year period.
Steps were taken to ensure students from districts with a smaller number of graduates would not be able to be identified.
The dashboard can be accessed here: http://www.sdbor.edu/dashboards/SDBORHighSchoolTransitionReportDashboard.html, and a narrative report on the dashboard here: http://sdbor.edu/theboard/agenda/2014/October/14_BOR1014.pdf.
Questions about the dashboard should be directed to the Board Regents at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 605-773-3455.
