The National Student Clearinghouse is preparing to deliver a major upgrade to our StudentTracker secondary service, StudentTracker 3.0, which includes new functionality and insights. Here you’ll learn what to expect as we transition our StudentTracker for High Schools users to StudentTracker 3.0. Make sure you bookmark this page and visit it periodically for updates and get ready for StudentTracker 3.0!

The StudentTracker 3.0 Difference

StudentTracker 3.0 is the learner insights tool you’ve been waiting for offering all these benefits and features, and more:

  • Postsecondary data are refreshed daily (goodbye, effective dates!).
  • Outcomes are immediately available within the application (so long PDF report!).
  • Ability to interact with your data by choosing the high school class for which you want to see an outcome and using breakdowns and filters to see outcomes for different combinations of the demographic data elements.1
  • Full transparency into your StudentTracker account. You can see your contact list, your list of participating high schools and their ACT and NCES codes, and the terms of your StudentTracker account, including the subscription end date.

What's New?

Interactive KPIs Dashboard

As soon as you log on, StudentTracker 3.0 presents you with a dashboard that automatically displays these three key performance indicators (KPIs):2

  • Enrollment
  • Retention & persistence
  • Graduation

The second page of each KPI shows additional outcomes. You can use the filters and breakdowns available on the page to view more granular outcomes. Our in-app help provides instant answers to help you use StudentTracker 3.0.

New Learner Outcomes

You also have access to these new learner outcomes in StudentTracker 3.0:

  • Dual enrollment and credentials earned: See how many of your students enrolled in college while attending high school and received a credential during this time.
  • Persistence: Learn whether your students remained at the same postsecondary institution in the second year (retained) OR moved to a different institution (persisted).
  • More credential information: See the number of students who earned certificates, the total number of credentials and the highest credential earned.

On-Demand Reporting

With StudentTracker 3.0, you can request reports whenever you need them and download them directly from the app:

  • Student-level detail report: Choose the high school cohort for which you want to receive the report. New data, like dual enrollment and credential records, and new columns of data (degree-level mapping, class level, and enrollment CIP) will automatically be included in your report.
  • Analysis-ready report: Condenses the detail report into one row per student. The key outcomes for each student are highlighted so you can take a deeper look at individual outcomes.

  • Aggregate-level.CSV: See the counts for each of the KPI visualization outcomes. The information is provided at the account level and includes counts for each high school associated with your account. (This report replaces individual high school data currently provided as an .XLS file.)

What's Not Changing

  • There will be a continued emphasis on the three KPIs that are important to understanding learner outcomes: enrollment, retention and persistence, and graduation.
  • The KPIs will continue to be available for the most recent eight high school cohort years.
  • You will still receive a student-level detail report (see “On-Demand Reporting” to learn how we improved it).
  • You will still submit your student data file through your Clearinghouse FTP account.

1You must provide these data in your student file submissions.
2You must have already submitted your student diploma files for data display.
