From press release:

Establishing and applying an early-warning system that uses academic indicators to identify students at-risk of dropping out is an effective strategy to improve the nationís graduation rate, according to a new brief from the Alliance for Excellent Education.

Using Early-Warning Data to Improve Graduation Rates: Closing Cracks in the Education System, by Alliance senior policy associate Lyndsay Pinkus, argues that data regarding studentsí academic performance is more accurate at predicting the odds of dropping out than the more traditionally accepted socioeconomic factors and life experiences. Additionally, efforts to prevent early school-related risk factors improve the likelihood students will remain in school and earn a diploma.
