||The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education, will sponsor two 2½-day advanced studies seminars on the use of longitudinal education databases for research and policy studies in 2007. Both seminars—this one in May and the other in July—will cover the same material, focusing specifically on the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:2002) and the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88) databases. The design of NELS:88 and ELS:2002 permits the examination of education, work, and the socialization of youth in the United States and the influences of schools, teachers, community, and family in promoting growth and positive outcomes. Please note that this seminar's content is the same as the May seminar.
||This seminar is open to researchers, education practitioners, and policy analysts from state and local education agencies and professional associations as well as advanced graduate students and faculty members from colleges and universities nationwide.
