Target-setting method

Projection

Target-setting method details
Linear trend fitted using ordinary least squares and a projection at the 75 percent prediction interval.
Target-setting method justification
Trend data were evaluated for this objective. Using historical data points, a trend line was fitted using ordinary least squares, and the trend was projected into the next decade. This method was used because three or more comparable data points were available, the projected value was within the range of possible values, and a projection at the 75 percent prediction interval was selected because it was a conservative estimate based on sustained trends over time. This trend should continue barring any widespread changes in educational practices.
