High School Exit Exams and Dropout in an Era of Increased Accountability

April 24, 2014 11:00 AM

Authors Steven W. Hemelt and Dave E. Marcotte look at a key form of student-level accountability in the requirement for students to pass high school exit exams (HSEEs) in order to receive a diploma. Their paper, High School Exit Exams and Dropout in an Era of Increased Accountability, published in the Spring 2013 issue of JPAM, examine the impact of HSEEs on dropout during a period when these exams became more common and rigorous. Does offering alternate pathways to graduation for students who cannot pass HSEEs moderate any dropout effects? The authors estimate dropout effects by grade for all students as well as by race, sex, and urbanicity and found that HSEEs increase dropout rates for students in the 12th grade, with especially large effects for African-American students.
