High-quality, accessible, and actionable data are essential to drive greater postsecondary attainment.

In an effort to support community-based collaborations on data use among key sectors—education, business, policy, and nonprofit and community organizations—and as part of the Community Partnership for Attainment (CPA), funded by Lumina Foundation, IHEP developed a series of primer fact sheets and tactical guidebooks to explain how some communities use data effectively to advance postsecondary attainment.

This guidebook shares more about different data tools that communities use to support students and improve educational outcomes, and how you could potentially adopt these tools in your own communities.
