A new independent report card on the performance of America's colleges is giving Colorado relatively high marks.

A biennial study by the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education flunked 36 states in affordability of higher education in public and private four-year schools and in community colleges.

Colorado received a "D-minus.'' Only California, Utah and Minnesota earned higher than a "D.''

Colorado improved in two areas, with more students performing well on college entrance exams and making timely progress toward earning a college certificate or degree.

But Colorado was among the poorest-performing states in the percentage of people 18 to 24 years old earning a high school diploma or General Education Development diploma, at 85 percent.
