In April 2016, The Education Trust published Meandering Toward Graduation: Transcript Outcomes of High School Graduates. The report showcases the results of their analysis of high school transcripts to discover what students’ course-taking behavior reveals about their readiness—or lack thereof—for postsecondary education and careers.
This study analyzed what predicted students’ postsecondary aspirations in a sample of 5258 high school students.
