Better Data on High-School-to-College-Transitions with SLEDS

The good news is, Minnesota has developed a data system to answer these questions. The Statewide Longitudinal Education Data System, or SLEDS, brings together student data from pre-kindergarten through completion of higher education and into the workforce. By bridging existing data with other new data, a range of questions can be answered to gauge the effectiveness of current programs and design improvement strategies to help students.
