The Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) has set the goal of doubling the rate at which Hispanics earn a college degree within the next decade. In this context, RAND Education has developed information to assist HSF in developing a comprehensive strategy to meet its goal. This report outlines a comprehensive set of indicators to allow HSF (or anyone else) to monitor progress towards its goal. The proposed set of indicators captures the progress made by Hispanics at key points in the education process from pre-school to high school and eventually graduation from college. Together, these indicators provide a dynamic view of the educational status of Hispanics from three different perspectives: across age-cohorts in a given year; over time for a specific cohort of students; and over time for a specific age group. The report also displays trends for each of the indicators selected.

This report is part of the RAND draft series. The unrestricted draft was a product of RAND from 1993 to 2003 that represented preliminary or prepublication versions of other more formal RAND products for distribution to appropriate external audiences. The draft could be considered similar to an academic discussion paper. Although unrestricted drafts had been approved for circulation, they were not usually formally edited or peer reviewed.
