Measurement For Mobility

How States Can Use Data to Incentivize Postsecondary and Workforce Success in Public Education

Public education is a major investment for states; how do they know that the investments they make in their K-12 and higher education systems are paying off and driving economic mobility for their citizens?

Measurement for Mobility, a new report from Education Strategy Group and American Student Assistance, examines how states are measuring and supporting students’ long-term success via their reporting, accountability, and incentive systems. The report looks across all 50 states to understand how they are (or are not) using postsecondary and workforce metrics in both their K-12 and higher education systems. While there has been some progress in recent years, significant work remains to embed long-term measures of success as the core drivers of efforts to better understand and improve the performance of our education systems.
