Course Enrollment Patterns in Public Secondary Schools 1969 to 1987.
Tuma, John E.; And Others
This data handbook presents enrollment statistics for public high school graduates for selected years between 1969 and 1987. The data used to generate these statistics were taken from students' high school transcripts. Four data sets were used to generate the statistics in this time series report: the National Assessment of Educational Progress (1987); High School and Beyond (1982); the National Longitudinal Survey--Youth Cohort (1975-82); and the Educational Testing Service's Study of Academic Prediction and Growth (1969). The Secondary School Taxonomy was used to organize the data in a consistent framework. There are 155 tables in this report, organized in three series. The first series shows general enrollment trends for students with various demographic characteristics. The second series shows in greater detail the trends in academic enrollments, and the third series presents enrollment trends in the vocational education curriculum. Appendixes provide detailed discussions of the data sources and research methodology. (KC)
