RSSI trains participating school districts to use the National Student Clearinghouse’s data for informing strategy development and implementation of college access programming. Through NSC’s High School StudentTracker service, high schools obtain long-range school district data about their students’ postsecondary outcomes. Specifically, StudentTracker allows pilot school districts to set baselines for enrollment, persistence, and completion, and allows them to measure changes. Also, Studentracker provides national benchmarks against which RSSI pilot school districts can compare outcomes. Following are frequently asked questions and a guide to help RSSI pilot school districts get started with the use of StudentTracker.
