Definitions: The Four-Year Graduation Rate is a four-year, on-time graduation rate based on a cohort of first time ninth grade students plus transfers into the cohort within the four-year period minus transfers out of the cohort within the four-year period. The Four-Year Graduation Rate is aligned to the National Center for Education Statistics Exclusion-Adjusted Cohort Graduation Indicator.

This rate is similar to, but not the same as, the National Governors Association (NGA) Graduation Rate. The NGA Rate allows more time for Special Education students and recent immigrants to graduate. This data to measure Minnesota's graduation rate will be used from 2007 forward.
