Data and Statistics

New Mexico implemented its first 4-year cohort graduation rate in 2008. Cohort rates prior to 2008 are not comparable. A cohort is named according to students’ expected fourth year of high school; for example, the “Class of 2013” is also the “Cohort of 2013”.  Cohorts are tracked for one additional year past their expected year of graduation, yielding 5-year and 6-year graduation rates for the same cohort of students.

Key features of New Mexico’s Shared Accountability model are that:

  • all schools with any grade 9, 10, 11 or 12 receive a rate;
  • student outcomes are distributed proportionally to all high schools they attend; and
  • all students entering New Mexico public high schools, in any grade, become members of an on-time cohort

For more information on historic changes in the calculation of graduation rates, please see Instructional Guides.
