Tool 5 – Estimating Graduation Rates In Your Community

Purpose: The purpose of this tool is to enable community members to identify low graduation rate schools in their communities using multiple measures of graduation rates.

  • Compare your high school’s promoting power and Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate (ACGR). Is one higher than the other?
  • How does the total number of 9th graders in your school (A) compare to the number of first-time ninth-graders in your school (D) ?
  • How does the total number of 12th graders in your school (B) compare to the number of standard diploma recipients (I) in your school?
  • Why do you think there are differences in these numbers?
  • See Tool 4 for an in-depth explanation of why graduation rate estimates may differ.
