About Our Research
Our projects focus on issues such as:
STATEWIDE STUDENT DATA SYSTEM:
As a follow-up to our series demonstrating the need for a longitudinal student data system in California, we are tracking California’s efforts to design and build a Cradle to Career data system. This work is funded by the Lumina Foundation.
POSTSECONDARY STUDENT SUCCESS:
We are studying the progress and success of recent cohorts of students in the California Community Colleges, with an eye toward identifying “bright spots”—those colleges that have higher rates of progress and success among —as a step toward identifying institutional policies and practices that support underserved student populations.
