Data linking between educational agencies facilitates the discussion about the postsecondary education success pipeline for Hoosier students. The graphic to the left displays the college going rate of Indiana’s high school cohort for years 2012-2015 and also displays the most frequent sectors of enrollment among college enrollees. The graphic also provides an institutional breakout for those who enroll in Indiana public institutions. The power of data linking between educational agencies is showcased in Indiana’s College Readiness Reports which provide information about Indiana students’ college access and performance (reports: http://www.in.gov/che/2489.htm ; dashboard: http://www.in.gov/che/4553.htm ). College enrollment data outside of Indiana public colleges are supplemented with further data linking with the National Student Clearinghouse.
