About Indicators and Metrics

The E-W Framework recommends 99 indicators of student outcomes and milestones and related system conditions needed to help every student succeed as they progress from early education through their career. Based on research and input from experts, each indicator is associated with a description of why it matters for economic mobility and security, recommended metrics and data sources, and details to consider for measurement.
