WISEdash Extracts for Choice Schools

WISEdash extracts

WISEdash Extracts are intended to help Choice schools access graduation and dropout rate information normally available only in WISEdash for Districts. WISEdash Extracts work similarly to normal WISEdata Portal exports, and allow Choice schools to download reports that they can use to track graduation cohorts and calculate graduation, high school completion, and dropout rates. The available WISEdash Extracts include:

Extract Name Description
Graduation & HS Completion Rate This report shows students included in the numerator and denominator of the Graduation Rate (Regular Diploma) and High School Completion Rate.
Graduate Future Cohorts This report shows the cohort for high school completion in which a student is placed based on grade level and school year of their first entry into high school.
Dropout Rate This report shows students included in the numerator and denominator of the annual dropout rate.
Absenteeism This report shows students' status regarding chronic abstenteeism under the Wisconsin state definition.

Accessing WISEdash Extracts

WISEdata users at Choice schools can access WISEdash Extracts in WISEdata Portal. To do so:

  1. Log in to WISEdata Portal through the WISEhome.
  2. Under the Agency header, go to Exports.
  3. Download the extract you want to see under the WISEdash Extracts section.

Dropout Rate

The following columns are included in the Graduation & HS Completion Rate and Graduate Future Cohorts extracts. For more information about calculating dropout rates, refer to the About the Data - Dropouts page.

Column Name Description
Dropout Rate School Year The school year for which the student is counted as a dropout. Dropouts are calculated annually. A student may be a dropout in multiple and consecutive school years.
Grade Level

The grade level in which the student will be reported as a dropout. For midterm dropouts, this grade level is equivalent to the grade level of the enrollment record that resulted in the dropout. For full term dropouts, this grade level is calculated as follows:

  • If the student is identified as promoted to the next grade level in the enrollment record that resulted in the dropout, the student is reported as a dropout for the grade level they were to be promoted to.
  • If the student is identified as retained in the enrollment record, the student is reported as a dropout for the grade level in the enrollment record.
Midterm Dropout Indicator Indicates that the student did not complete the school year in which they are identified as a dropout.
Full Term Dropout Indicator Indicates that the student completed the school term and did not re-enroll for the subsequent school year.
Completed School Term Indicator Indicates whether the student completed the selected dropout rate school year.
