Title:  Considerations for Using the School Courses for the Exchange of Data (SCED) Classification System in High School Transcript Studies: Applications for Converting Course Codes from the Classification of Secondary School Courses (CSSC)
Description: The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) began collecting high school transcripts with the High School and Beyond (HS&B) longitudinal study of students who were in the 10th grade in 1980. NCES has continued to collect transcripts for a secondary-level cohort in each subsequent decade. This report describes the two high school course coding systems used by NCES and the development of a crosswalk that allows data coded with the first system to be translated into the second system. It then provides tables with estimates generated using the two different systems.
