The following NCES publication is now available: Tracking Students to 200 Percent of Normal Time: Effect on Institutional Graduation Rates. This Issue Brief examines institutional graduation rates reported at 200 percent of normal time, a time frame that corresponds to completing a bachelor's degree in 8 years and an associate's degree in 4 years. The report compares these rates with those reported at 150 percent and 100 percent of normal time for all nine institutional sectors. The purpose is to determine whether the longer time frame results in higher institutional graduation rates. The NCES publication number is 2011221 and it can be found at: http://nces.ed.gov/pubsearch/ .
