Toward Convergence: A Technical Guide for the Postsecondary Metrics Framework
Over the last decade, the field has identified key metrics that measure postsecondary performance, efficiency, and equity. IHEP’s new report, Toward Convergence: A Technical Guide for the Postsecondary Metrics Framework, reflects the results of this progress and recommends definitions for 31 metrics. It also describes how the data can be used to advance student success.
