Everett, Bruce E.
This paper summarizes the data management techniques used in a large-scale longitudinal study of intensive, innovative programs. Emphasis is placed on the scope of data collection, the methods used in the study to keep track of students over several years, the techniques used to collect data about students in public schools, the quality control on the data, and the data-file management system used to reference and cross-reference multilevel variables for subsequent analyses.
