NCES 2004010 Remedial Education at Degree-Granting Postsecondary Institutions in Fall 2000
This report provides national estimates on the prevalence and characteristics of remedial courses and enrollments in degree-granting institutions in fall 2000 and changes from fall 1995. The report compares data from the 1995 and 2000 surveys on remedial course offerings, student participation in remedial programs, institutional structure of remedial programs, and the delivery of remedial courses through distance education. It also examines two additional issues in fall 2000: types of technology used in the delivery of remedial education through distance education courses, and the use of computers as a hands-on instructional tool for on-campus remedial education.

NCES 2002152 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study 1999-2000 [NPSAS:2000] Methodology Report
This report describes the methods and procedures used for the 2000 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:2000). NPSAS:2000 is a comprehensive study of financial aid among postsecondary education students in the United States and Puerto Rico that provides information on trends in financial aid and on the ways in which families pay for postsecondary education. NPSAS:2000 included important changes from previous NPSAS surveys (conducted in 1987, 1990, 1993, and 1996) in its sample design and collection of data. For example, the current study is the first to utilize a Web-based computer-assisted data entry (Web-CADE) system for student record abstraction. However, sufficient comparability in survey design and instrumentation was maintained to ensure that important comparisons with past NPSAS studies could be made.
NCES 2001534 Adult Literacy and Education in America
This report analyzes the literacy proficiencies of the nationís adults in relation to their schooling, with a special focus on adults who did not complete high school, those whose proficiencies were below average, and those who enrolled in programs to improve their basic literacy. The findings were based on data from the 1992 National Adult Literacy Survey. Field staff for this survey interviewed nearly 13,600 individuals aged 16 and older throughout the nation, as well as adults 16 to 65 years old in each of eleven states that chose to participate in a special study designed to provide state-level results. This 1992 survey measured literacy proficiencies using performance across a wide array of tasks that reflect the types of reading materials and literacy demands that adults encounter in their daily lives.
