Description
  • Abstract

    The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is a federally-funded, ongoing, periodic assessment of educational achievement in the various subject areas and disciplines taught in the nation's schools. Since 1969, NAEP has gathered information about levels of educational achievement of 9-, 13-, and 17-year-olds across the country. In the fall of 1987, high school transcripts were collected from 34,140 students attending 433 schools that had previously been sampled for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) in 1986. The sample of students for the transcript study included both handicapped and nonhandicapped students who in 1985-1986 were enrolled in the 11th grade and/or were 17 years old. Approximately half of the sampled students had participated in NAEP assessments in 1986. The 1987 High School Transcript Study also collected school-level information such as course lists, graduation requirements, and the definition of units of credit and grades. Student information included sex, grade level, age, graduation status, and race/ethnicity. The following additional information was gathered for handicapped students: handicapping condition, severity of cognitive, psychosocial, and physical limitation, reading and mathematics grade level (teacher estimate), placement in mainstream, resource, and self-contained classes, and receipt of selected services.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..

Sampled Universe
Students, both handicapped and nonhandicapped, who were enrolled in the 11th grade and/or were 17 years old.
Sampling
A nationally representative sample of 491 secondary schools selected for the 1986 National Assessment of Educational Progress, Grade 11/Age 17 students, of which 438 schools agreed to participate and 433 eventually provided transcripts. Within these schools, students were selected for the Transcript Study according to three categories: (1) Students who were sampled for the 1986 NAEP, (2) a newly drawn sample of students who were in the 11th grade in spring 1986, and (3) all of the handicapped students in the sample schools who were in the eligible age/grade. Two distinct sets of sampling procedures were used within schools, depending upon whether schools had retained the materials used in sampling and assessing students in the 1986 NAEP. In both types of schools, the sample included all handicapped students who were in the 11th grade and/or were 17 years old in 1985-1986. A handicapped student was defined as one who had had an IEP (Individualized Educational Program), and was not classified as "gifted," in 1985-1986.
