Abstract

This tool, developed by the National High School Center at the American Institutes for Research in collaboration with Matrix Knowledge Group, is designed to allow users to identify students who show early warning signs that they are at-risk for dropping out of high school. The Early Warning System tool automatically calculates indicators that are predictive of whether students graduate or drop out. These indicators are related to attendance, course failures, grade point average (GPA), and credit accumulation. The tool is designed to be used on a regular basis—after the first 20 or 30 days of school, and after every grading period thereafter.
