Pathways to Academic Success in Higher Education is a unique contribution to the theory and research surrounding the use of student record data systems. Analysis of one state's millennial cohort of students informs the authors' in-depth study of how we can support student achievement and access through state-level policy.Revealing the diverse paths to higher education, this book provides a theoretically sound and balanced approach for improving HE access, taking into account the wealth of information in state data systems and incorporating existing access and achievement models. Effective use of state data systems is outlined, and guidance is offered on how best to understand and promote retention and success once students have achieved the HE level.Pathways to Academic Success in Higher Education includes:A refined theory of academic success which integrates a balanced access model and the student choice construct.The impact state policy on K-12 education and public financing of higher education has on high school graduation rates, test scores, college enrollment, and diversity.Analyses of student preparation, college and major choice, transfer, and persistence in a state system of higher education.Application of the action inquiry model to higher education at the state level, with institutional case studies.
