The Regional Educational Laboratory Midwest, operated by AIR, collaborated with members of the Midwest Career Readiness Research Alliance to conduct a study that described the postsecondary pathways of Minnesota public high school graduates. The goals of the study included describing the pathways that graduates take within 1 year of high school graduation; graduate degree attainment and employment outcomes 6 years later; and differences in initial pathways, degree attainment, and employment outcomes for students with different characteristics.
This video provides an overview of the study design that AIR’s Regional Educational Laboratory Midwest used to analyze the college and career pathways that students took within 1 year and 6 years of high school graduation. It also presents the study’s findings that will be used to bolster postsecondary success.
This report examines the postsecondary education and employment pathways of Minnesota public high school graduates 1 year after graduation and their college certificate and degree attainment and employment outcomes 6 years after graduation.
