Will sharing more K-12 data increase enrollment at public universities?

The College and Career Interest Task Force in Illinois is looking at ways to stem the flood of high school graduates attending colleges in other states and is set to present several options to the Illinois legislature by Jan. 30, Chalkbeat reports.Among the committee's considerations are ways to provide public universities with better access to student data, especially about students’ attitudes and interest in college, so these institutions can find ways to make themselves more attractive to students. They currently purchase data gained during the SAT from the College Board, an action that some committee members feel is illegal and others feel is ineffective, since private schools usually purchase the data sooner.The committee is considering gaining this data by using its own state-administered survey, and another option on the table is the creation of new scholarship opportunities for students who score in the top 10% of their graduating class.
