NCES 2022080 A Retrospective Look at U.S. Education Statistics
This commemorative guide is intended to provide a better understanding of the history and use of federal education statistics that have been collected and reported by the federal education statistics agency (now the National Center for Education Statistics) since 1868. The “statistical profiles” in this report use updated historical trend data from 120 Years of American Education: A Statistical Portrait to offer an in-depth look at what each statistic measures, how it has been collected over the years, and what the data reveal about the statistic. Statistics covered in the report include enrollment in elementary and secondary schools; high school graduates and graduation rates, and postsecondary student costs and finances. Readers can browse these profiles online and download PDFs of individual profiles.

NCES 2022071 Use of Supports among Students with Disabilities and Special Needs in College
This Data Point uses data from the High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09), a national study of more than 23,000 ninth-graders in 2009. Students answered surveys between 2009 and 2016. This Data Point investigates whether students informed colleges of their disabilities or special needs and who received accommodations for them. It also describes whether students used academic support services, sought help, or enrolled in remedial courses during college.

REL 2021049 Why school accountability systems disproportionately identify middle schools' SWD subgroups for TSI
The purpose of this study was to understand why middle schools in two mid-Atlantic states were apparently disproportionately identified for targeted support and improvement (TSI) based on the performance of their students with disabilities (SWD) subgroups. The study used publicly available data to examine differences across school levels – elementary, middle, and high – and between all students and SWDs. It is relevant to compare all students to SWDs because accountability systems designate TSI schools as those with subgroups of students that perform poorly relative to all students. The study focused on two aspects of school accountability systems: (1) the number of schools in each school level in which enough SWDs took state assessments for the school to be held accountable for the academic proficiency of its SWD subgroup, and (2) the average performance on accountability indicators, by school level and subgroup. In both states, SWDs in middle schools were over 20 percentage points more likely to take state assessments than were SWDs in elementary or high schools, meaning that middle schools’ SWD subgroups were substantially more likely to meet states’ minimum sample size requirements for including academic performance in accountability scores. Also, SWD subgroups across school levels consistently performed worse than all students on academic proficiency accountability indicators. Taken together, these findings suggest that middle schools’ SWD subgroups are more likely than elementary or high school SWD subgroups to be identified for TSI because their accountability scores are more likely to include academic proficiency indicator scores – which tend to be substantially lower than the all students group’s academic proficiency indicator scores. This research suggests that when designing school accountability systems, state education agencies may wish to consider how sample size affects estimates of subgroups’ performance, and in particular how sample size exclusions may mask poor performance for small subgroups.

NCES 2019019 User's Manual for the ECLS-K:2011 Fifth-Grade Hearing Evaluations Component Restricted-Use Data File
This User’s Manual provides information on the hearing evaluations conducted on a subsample of study children in the spring fifth-grade round of data collection for the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 2010-11 (ECLS-K:2011). It describes the evaluation components and data collection procedures used to evaluate children's hearing. It also describes the fifth-grade hearing evaluations component restricted-use data file structure and variables created from data collected during the evaluations. This manual is only available to users of the ECLS-K:2011 Fifth-Grade Hearing Evaluations Component Restricted-Use Data File (NCES 2019-018).

NCES 2019018 ECLS-K:2011 Fifth-Grade Hearing Evaluations Component Restricted-Use Data File
Hearing evaluations were conducted on a subsample of study children in the spring fifth-grade round of data collection. The ECLS-K:2011 fifth-grade hearing evaluations component restricted-use data file includes all of the hearing evaluation data collected during the spring 2016 round, including: responses from children to a set of pre-test questions intended to identify conditions that might affect either how the evaluation should be conducted or how the results should be interpreted; results from otoscopy, a brief visual examination of the ear; results from tympanometry, an automated test of middle ear function; results from pure tone air conduction audiometry; and results of a screener for specific language impairment. The hearing evaluations data are provided in an ASCII text file (Y5_hearingevaluation.DAT). A program that must be run in a statistical software package to input the ASCII text file and produce an analytic data file is provided in three formats: SAS, SPSS, and Stata. This file is intended to be used in conjunction with a main longitudinal restricted-use ECLS-K:2011 data file, for example the ECLS-K:2011 kindergarten-fifth grade restricted-use data file (NCES 2019-100).
