RAND researchers estimate Pittsburgh graduation, call for confirmed/audited withdrawal codes

John Engberg and Brian Gill's new study of Pittsburgh graduation rates estimates a longitudinal 5-year graduation rate by assuming that transfers have the same risk of graduation/dropping out as those who stay in the system. They also repeat my call for documentation and auditing of transfer exit codes. And their report is getting flack from the Pittsburgh board.

Hat-tip to Andrew Rotherham.
