The NYC Partnership for College Readiness and Success: Working Papers

In 2013, with funding from the U S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences (IES), the Research Alliance for New York City Schools began a groundbreaking partnership with the New York City Department of Education (NYC DOE) and the City University of New York (CUNY), focused on promoting students’ enrollment, persistence, and success in college. The most significant result from this work has been the creation of the Partnership Dataset, which is unique in its size, its depth of available individual-level data, and its longitudinal capabilities. The Dataset creates the architecture to follow NYC students through the critical transition from K-12 through post-secondary education. Currently, close to 900,000 individual NYC students can be traced from as early as their Kindergarten records in 1994 to as late as their college graduation in 2016. Drawing on these data, the Research Alliance and CUNY have published a series of working papers, available below.
