HSTS Database Training Seminar

Description: The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), in the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences (IES), will sponsor a 3-day advanced studies seminar on the use of the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) High School Transcript Study (HSTS) database for education research and policy analysis.

The NAEP High School Transcript Study collects transcripts from representative samples of America’s public and private high school graduates. The most recent study was conducted in 2005, in conjunction with grade 12 NAEP assessments in mathematics and science. The database includes information on students’ coursetaking, course credits earned, grade point average, performance on the NAEP assessment, and student and school background characteristics.

For more information about the NAEP HSTS, please review the materials posted on the survey website.
