Learning from the numbers: Regents Test Scores, Graduation Rates, and College Readiness

Setting up and using metrics is an iterative process; if you're doing it right, you're either going to make mistakes or you're going to learn from your data that you need to make changes. Yesterday's NY Times carried an article about the NY State Education Department Regents doing just that, looking at Regents' test scores and college readiness, and preparing to make changes to scoring, cutoffs, and curriculum. The article, here, is worth reading. The article links to the study NYSED released, which is even more worth reading. The study is also available on the NYSED website.
