Projects, Products, and Services of the National Center for Education Statistics, 1976.
Brandes, O. Jean
This volume provides an overview of projects conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Particular emphasis is placed on NCES activities that directly affect educational users; studies intended to improve the quality or utility of NCES data and products are not included, nor are projects aimed at a single client such as the Commissioner of Education or a congressional committee. The volume consists mainly of individual project summaries, organized by major program areas into eight topical sections, including preprimary education, elementary and secondary education, adult and occupational education, higher education, libraries and educational technology, dissemination services publications, standard terminology projects and products, and development projects. Each project summary is divided into three sections--description, purpose and uses, and publications. Almost all of the listed reports can be purchased from Government Printing Office bookstores.
