What if your state implemented more rigorous high school graduation requirements? How might that affect advanced course completion rates? Or graduation rates? This free webinar presents the findings from a study that may shed light on the possibilities.

In 2009, New Mexico adopted more rigorous high school graduation requirements. Recently, Gibson Consulting Group conducted a study that examined the changes in New Mexico’s high school students’ advanced course completion rates under these new requirements.

This webinar, provided as a part of Gibson Consulting Group’s work with the Regional Education Laboratory Southwest for the Institute of Education Sciences (i.e., the Department of Education), presents the findings from our study of “Advanced Course Completion Among Four-Year Students in New Mexico High Schools”. It includes research work conducted by several of our research scientists, including Eric Booth, Joseph Shields, and Jill Carle. This work was conducted in partnership with the Regional Education Laboratory Southwest’s New Mexico Achievement Gap Research Alliance.
