Complete College America, an organization dedicated to boosting college completion rates, has released a new guidebook that aims to help college leaders and state agencies better use data to measure and improve student outcomes.  

The guide offers recommendations on choosing performance indicators to assess student success, finding relevant data and using data from the National Student Clearinghouse Postsecondary Data Partnership, a source of institutional student success data. 

"This report lays out practical tools and guidance for states and institutions to develop measurement systems that will help them identify areas for improvement and take collective action to support student success," said Complete College America President Yolanda Watson-Spiva in a statement.
