This is the third report in a series examining factors linked to successful postsecondary transitions. This analysis builds upon information gained from previous years’ analyses surveyed 2006 and 2007 Central Texas graduates.
In this report, researchers identifed those factors - family background and influences, student characteristics, prehigh school and individual high school experiences - consistently associated with transitions to postsecondary education and employment outcomes, as well as those that vary depending upon the data source, time period or geographic area under study. Factors associated with populations of interest - Hispanic, low income and first-generation high school graduates - are also analyzed.  Researchers used several methods for their analysis to determine how robust these factors are across cohorts, data sources, locations, and model selection.
