NCES 95001 National Assessment of College Student Learning: Identifying College Graduates' Essential Skills in Writing, Speech and Listening, and Critical Thinking
Reports on the results of 3 Delphi panels composed of business, faculty, and policy making persons who were asked to rank the sets of higher order thinking and communication skills needed by college graduates.
NCES 95733 Measuring Instruction, Curriculum Content, and Instructional Resources: The Status of Recent Work
Review of literature and questionnaires on curriculum content, and instructional resources.
NCES 95696 Model-Based Methods for Analysis of Data from 1990 NAEP Trial State Assessment
Because large scale surveys like NAEP use complex sampling designs, resampling methods such as jackknife or bootstrap must be used to estimate the precision of student achievement. This project investigated the use of hierarchical linear models to estimate standard errors for NAEP proficiency scores.
NCES 95713 Use of Person-Fit Statistics in Reporting and Analyzing National Assessment of Educational Progress Results
This study investigated the usefulness of one approach to measuring the assessment accuracy of NAEP data (weighted-total-fit-mean-square) using the 1990 NAEP. The study analyzed the fit of response patterns to the measurement model across individuals; looked for group and item-type differences; and evaluated the practical significance of the weighted-total-fit-mean-square.
NCES 94286 The National Assessment of College Student Learning: Identification of the Skills to Be Taught, Learned, and Assessed
This is a preliminary listing of higher order thinking and communication skills to be used to assess college student learning in support of national goal 5.5.
NCES 94038 NAEP 1992 Trends in Academic Progress
Longitudinal report of NAEP results including results from 1992 NAEP.
NCES 93470 School Engagement and Students At Risk
An examination of two sets of attributes that may place a child at risk for educational difficulties: 1) Status risk factors, 2) Behavioral risk factors.
NCES 93461 Modeling Teacher Supply and Demand, with Commentary
This research and development report describes an effort undertaken to model teacher supply and demand, using logistic regression. It includes commentary from substantive and technical experts on the validity of the modeling effort.
NCES 19933156 The National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972: Annotated Bibliography of Studies, 1980-1992.
The National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972 (NLS-72) is the "grandmother" of the longitudinal studies designed and conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics, and is probably the richest archive ever assembled on a generation of Americans. Participants were selected as high school seniors in 1972 and were followed through postsecondary transcripts in 1984. In 1981, Samuel Peng assembled a bibliography of studies describing or using NLS-72 data. This publication extends Peng's work by describing the considerable number of studies published since the first bibliography. Works are arranged in the following categories: (1) general descriptions (data sets and populations); (2) methodology; (3) work (employment); (4) secondary education; (5) postsecondary education; (6) educational and occupational aspirations; (7) educational and occupational attainment; (8) gender and racial-ethnic differences; (9) vocational technical and vocational education; (10) teachers; (11) marriage, family, and life transitions; (12) economics of education; (13) testing; (14) others; and (15) tabulations. In all, 259 sources are listed and annotated with a brief description of the study and its methodology. Publication of this document coincides roughly with the release of an optical data disk with the NLS-72 data archive, manuals, and sample computer programs. (SLD)
NCES 91663 Inventory and Overview of Higher Standards and Their Effects on Elementary and Secondary Students
Review of literature since 1983 on effects of higher education standards on student enrollment, persistance, graduation rates and academic achievements.
NCES 92663 Overview and Inventory of State Requirements for School Coursework and Attendance
Review of literature since 1983 on effects of higher education standards on student enrollment, persistance, graduation rates and academic achievements.
NCES 92066 School Effects on Educational Achievement in Mathematics and Science: 1985-86 National Assessment of Educational Progress
The research on "school effectiveness" indicates that differences among schools can affect student achievement. The National Assessment of Educational Progress collects data on school characteristics, but no previous studies have attempted to link these data to student performance. This study will look at the relationship between science and mathematics achievement in grades three, seven and eleven and two types of explanatory variables: student level variables (i.e., gender, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status) and school level variables (e.g., student body composition, fiscal and physical characteristics of the school, school program structure, school academic standards, and principal and teacher characteristics).
NCES 92065 Exploring New Methods for Collecting Students' School-Based Writing
This publication will contain the results of the 1990 NAEP assessment in writing through portfolios.
NCES 1984221B High School Course Grade Standards. National Center for Education Statistics Bulletin.
Using the data from the High School and Beyond Transcript Survey for 1980 sophomores who graduated from high school by fall 1982, the course grade distributions are compared for the following major instruction program categories: English, mathematics, social sciences, physical sciences, life sciences, and foreign languages (academic courses); business, home economics, and trade and industry (vocational courses); visual and performing arts and personal and social development courses; and others. Grade distributions are contrasted by geographic region and are related to homework effort, test performance level, and other student characteristics. The results of the study are presented in table format. (DWH)
