NCES 2000062 The Condition of Education, 2000
The Condition of Education is an indicator report, summarizing the health of education, monitoring important developments, and showing trends in major aspects of education. The 65 indicators included examine relationships; show changes over time; compare or contrast sub-populations, regions, or countries; or assess characteristics of students from different backgrounds and types of schools. An indicator is policy relevant and problem oriented; it typically incorporates a standard against which to judge progress or regression. Please remember, however, that indicators are not intended to identify causes or solutions, and cannot individually by themselves provide a completely comprehensive view of conditions in education.

NCES 2000153 Mapping the Road to College: First-Generation Students’ Math Track, Planning Strategies, and Context of Support
This publication compares first-generation students (i.e., those whose parents have no more than a high school education) with their peers whose parents attended college. It focuses on mathematics course taking—the effectiveness of taking algebra in 8th grade and advanced math courses in high school in getting to college—and planning strategies students used to prepare for college. The report also examines the involvement of students’ parents, teachers, and other “institutional agents” capable of helping them prepare for college.

NCES 98095 Who Goes to America's Highly Ranked "National" Universities?
NCES merged the lists of colleges and universities reported in the September 18, 1995 issue of "U.S. News and World Report" with data NCES collected as part of a national longitudinal study of high school students who are followed into postsecondary education. That effort produced this report which examines the characteristics of students who enter "Tier 1" National universities. The findings presented in this report underscore the importance of high school achievement and course taking.

NCES 1986221 National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972. Postsecondary Education Transcript Study Data File User's Manual. Contractor Report.
The codebook for the Postsecondary Education Transcript File of the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972 (NLS-72), which is a machine-readable data file containing information on transcripts from NLS-72 senior cohort members who reported attending a postsecondary institution after high school, is presented. Records were obtained from all types of educational institutions and programs. A total of 19,033 transcripts reflecting the educational activities of 14,759 sample members are included. Information includes: (1) major and minor fields of study; (2) periods of enrollment; (3) courses taken; (4) credits earned; and (5) grades received and credentials earned at 2-year and 4-year institutions. Data are organized at the student, transcript, term, and course levels. This user's manual documents the procedures used to collect this information and provides researchers with the technical information necessary to use the public release data files. Data editing procedures are discussed, and the organization and content of the files are described. Procedures used to construct sampling weights for use in computing population estimates are reviewed. Lists of the endorsing institutions, postsecondary school codes in numerical order, postsecondary school codes in alphabetical order, and course subject codes in numerical order are provided. The data file record layout and frequency distributions are tabulated.
