The IPEDS Technical Review Panel (TRP) met in March to discuss Calculating Placement Rates. No changes to IPEDS were suggested by this TRP. The TRP determined that at this time, a single job placement rate methodology could not be developed without further study because of limitations in data systems and available data. Further, it suggests that greater transparency about how rates are calculated be required as an interim step for institutions disclosing these rates. For additional details, please see the meeting report on the RTI website: https://edsurveys.rti.org/IPEDS_TRP. Comments from interested parties are due to Janice Kelly-Reid, IPEDS Project Director at RTI International, at ipedsTRPcomment@rti.org, by August 1, 2011.
