Foreword

Since the release of Measuring Up 2000: The State-by-State Report Card for Higher Education, in November 2000, the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education has commissioned a number of studies designed to test relationships among and between the performance categories in the report card. The first of these tests was conducted by Peter Ewell of the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS), resulting in a Center publication, A Review of Tests Performed on the Data in Measuring Up 2000, published in June 2001.

This publication, Supplementary Analysis for Measuring Up 2000: An Exploratory Report, builds upon that work. Mario Martinez, assistant professor in educational management and development at New Mexico State University, explores the relationships within and between performance categories. A related study, Beneath the Surface, prepared by Alisa Cunningham and Jane Wellman, and commissioned by the National Center, seeks to better understand the "drivers" of performance used in Measuring Up 2000.

The National Center is grateful for the contributions made in this report and welcomes the responses of readers.
