The Impact of the High School Academic Performance Index (API) on Student Eligibility

The Impact of the High School Academic Performance Index (API) on Student Eligibility

Increases in school API play a major role in the probability that a student will become UC and CSU eligible. However the increase in eligibility for Latino students occurs at a much lower rate than it does for all other racial/ethnic groups.
Using a quantitative approach, this paper examines data from 12, 757 student transcripts, randomly collected from 711 public high schools, in order to address the following research questions:
-What is the relationship between UC and CSU eligibility rates and high school API?
-When comparing racial/ethnic populations across various API and income levels, do eligibility rates increase at the same rate for all populations as API and income increases?
