UCLA’s Institute for Democracy, Education, and Access provides a useful measure of college readiness known as the college opportunity ratio (COR). COR is a 3-number figure that reports how many students graduate and how many pass the A-G courses required for admission to the California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) post-secondary educational system compared to each 100 students enrolled as 9th graders four years before. The COR for underrepresented students reflects data for African-American, Latino, and American Indian students.
