NCEE 20134011 Improving Post-High School Outcomes for Transition-Age Students with Disabilities: An Evidence Review
A new report reviews the research literature on strategies designed to help students with disabilities transition from high school to employment, postsecondary education and training, or independent living. The review deviates from previous evidence reviews on this topic by using the What Works Clearinghouse (WWW) systematic review procedures, focusing on direct measures of students' post-high school outcomes, and including more recent studies released between April 2008 and June 2011.

A total of 43 eligible studies were reviewed and assigned a WWC standards rating, of which 16 met the WWC standards. Community-based work programs were found to have mixed effects on students’ employment outcomes and potentially positive effects on postsecondary education outcomes. Functional life skills development programs were found to have potentially positive effects on independent living outcomes although the extent of evidence was small.

Taking this evidence as a whole, the review highlights the limited support currently available from high quality intervention research to identify a wide range of programs and strategies that help students with disabilities transition to employment, postsecondary education and training, or independent living. The report offers hypotheses about program characteristics, program development, and research design considerations gleaned from studies that met WWC standards as well as those considered as "exploratory."

NCES 2010338 Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 Base Year to Second Follow-up Public-use Data
These data are a Public-Use version of the ELS:2002/06 Restricted-use Base Year to Second Follow-up data (NCES 2008-346) released previously. These data can be downloaded using a new “EDAT” web application on the NCES website. The application allows users to download the data files they need for research in one of six statistical programming languages and then select the variables they need to perform that research. ELS:2002/06 is a nationally representative longitudinal survey of 16,200 high school sophomores in 2002, who were interviewed again in 2004 when most were seniors, and again in 2006 when many were sophomores in college or in the workforce. Data are included on the academic and other aspects of the environment of the schools in which these students were enrolled, as well as peer and parental influences. At the college level, data on the extent of college search, expectations, and choice processes prior to college enrollment, as well as information about subsequent pathways into and out of various types of postsecondary institutions are included. The initial entry of these youth into adulthood is then traced with respect to employment, living patterns, family formation, volunteerism, and military service. The last data collection in the survey will be in 2012, when most of the sample members who went to college will have left college and entered the workforce.

NCES 2008346 Education Longitudinal Study of 2002/06: Restricted Use Second Follow-up Data Files, Data File Documentation, and Electronic Codebook System
This ELS:2002/2004 CDROM contains a revised version of the restricted-use base-year to second follow-up data that were previously released. Manuals documenting the sample design of these data, how they were collected, and how they should be used are included. This documentation is public use and can be downloaded directly from the ELS website (http://nces.ed.gov/surveys/els2002 /manuals.asp).

The ELS:2002 longitudinal study is designed to monitor a national sample of young people as they progress from tenth grade through high school and on to postsecondary education and/or the world of work. By the third follow-up in 2012, these young people will be in their mid-twenties.

Users of the original second follow-up restricted-use data (NCES 2008-346) can obtain this revised version (NCES 2008-346r) by requesting it from the IES Data Security Office (IESData.Security@ed.gov). Nearly all of the changes that have been made in the original data are in base year and first follow-up variables and not transcript or second follow-up variables.

However, none of these changes affect data that were originally released in the base year to first follow-up restricted-use data (NCES 2006-430 ), or the transcript restricted-use data (NCES-2006-351).
