Postsecondary Attainment Index Calculator

The Postsecondary Attainment Index provides an estimate of the proportion of current ninth-graders who will complete a college credential within 10 years, if current rates don't change. See the research.

Replace the numbers in the boxes below with your school, district, or non-profit’s milestone rates — or just test out different milestone rates — to calculate a Postsecondary Attainment Index. The default numbers below are the latest from Chicago Public Schools.

% ERROR_MSG_PLACEHOLDER × ( ERROR_MSG_PLACEHOLDER % × ERROR_MSG_PLACEHOLDER % ) = % + ( ERROR_MSG_PLACEHOLDER % × ERROR_MSG_PLACEHOLDER % ) = % + ( ERROR_MSG_PLACEHOLDER % × ERROR_MSG_PLACEHOLDER % ) = % = % = ERROR_MSG_PLACEHOLDER %

If rates don't change, NN out of 100 of today’s 9th graders will complete a college degree or certificate within 10 years.
