Statewide postsecondary feedback systems contained in this database refer to reports that are prepared by a higher education governing body, typically due to a statutory mandate, which detail the performance of entering freshmen that graduated from the state's high schools. The most common performance indicator included in the report is the rate at which the students are enrolling in remedial and developmental courses.
