College and Career Readiness (2017-2018)

For the 2017-2018 NSPF, the College and Career Readiness performance indicator was modified for high schools.

 

High schools were measured in the following three areas:

 

Post-Secondary Preparedness Participation Percentage

Grade 12 students participating in one or more post-secondary preparedness programs at any point during their 4 years in high school, count as a participant in the participation measure.

 

Post-Secondary Preparedness Completion Percentage

Grade 12 students completing one or more post-secondary preparedness programs at any point during their 4 years in high school, count as a completer in the completion measure.

 

Percentage of students earning an Advanced Diploma

Grade 12 students in the class of 2017 who earned an Advanced Diploma.

 

Post-Secondary Preparedness Programs

For the purposes of the NSPF, only the programs listed below were included in the participation and completion percentages.
