The New College Scorecard Revealed - Michael Stratford, Inside Higher Ed

The Obama administration over the weekend unveiled the revamped college information website it created instead of its original plan to rate colleges, releasing a trove of new federal data about the nation’s colleges and universities. These new data show publicly, for the first time, the share of a college’s former students who make some progress in paying down their federal loans within the first three years after leaving college. And they provide the first comprehensive look at how much students who receive federal loans and Pell Grants end up earning after they leave a specific college, both in the short term and long term. The White House released the new data and website on Saturday morning, in advance of President Obama's trip today to Iowa, where he will speak about college costs at a town hall event with high school students.
