OpenSDP College-Going Pathways (R)
This repository contains web guides, Stata data visualization code, and sample data to help education data analysts answer questions about patterns and trends in students’ on-track status in ninth grade, high school graduation, college enrollment, college persistence, and patterns and trends along the education pipeline. The College-Going Pathways materials can also be accessed on the OpenSDP website at opensdp.github.io/analysis.
The code in this repository is based on code from the "Analyze" section of the Strategic Data Project Toolkit for Effective Data Use, modified to work with synthetic data generated by the OpenSDPsynthR data simulation engine. The College-Going Pathways guides and code will also work with college-going analysis files prepared to the SDP data specification.
This repository is organized in the following folder structure:
Rcontains R functions necessary to complete the analyses
datacontains data necessary to complete the analysis
figurecontains image files for the figures in the guide
imgcontains image and style assets to format the guides
docscontains the rendered documents and the markdown scripts to build them
These materials were originally authored by the Strategic Data Project.
OpenSDP is an online, public repository of analytic code, tools, and training intended to foster collaboration among education analysts and researchers in order to accelerate the improvement of our school systems. The community is hosted by the Strategic Data Project, an initiative of the Center for Education Policy Research at Harvard University. We welcome contributions and feedback.
