The purpose of the End of Year (EOY) is to summarize the annual educational history for students throughout the school year. The EOY also pulls in Advanced Placement course completion and post-secondary program information. Beginning in 2020-2021, the collection will track Graduation Guidelines requirements for every high school student.
The data from this collection is used to derive the graduation, completion, dropout, mobility, and stability rates used in school and district-level accountability measures. This information informs policy at the state and federal level and becomes public information that is used in official reports and news articles.
