together to produce a single combined fall 2013 Central Texas two-year college student data set
indicating an overall study site enrollment of n = 17,908. Column information for this combined
college student data set was retitled using the Reporting and Procedures Manual for Texas
Community, Technical, and State Colleges (THECB, 2014a).
Concerning Texas public high school campus-level data, high school campus
identification codes and high school campus-level accountability information for 2013 student
graduates were downloaded from TEA's publically accessible website into a comma delineated
spreadsheet. Using Microsoft Excel 2010, high school campus code information was merged
with the public school accountability information obtained from TEA to produce an aggregated
data set for all the Texas high schools that graduated students in the spring of 2013.
Finally, using the Texas high school campus identification codes present in both the TEA
high school campus data and the combined college student data set, the two individual data sets
were merged together to create a master data spreadsheet containing all 2013 Texas high school
campus-level information and the 2013 Central Texas two-year college student data. This master
data set was then formatted for analysis, screened for erroneous entries, and sorted to include
only Texas high school campus information related to the first-year students enrolled into the
Central Texas 2 year college for the 2013 fall semester. This master data set identified 5,036
first-year students that represented 296 Texas public high school campuses. Note that TEA did
not post the public archived public school information in real time. At the time of this analysis,
archived public school information had been updated only through the spring 2013 academic
school year, thus providing the reasoning for using the Central Texas two-year college
admissions data for the 2013 fall semester.
