Stephens, Susan A.; Lakin, K. Charlie
This final volume of a five-volume report on instructional programs for handicapped children and youth in separate day and residential facilities throughout the United States provides additional documentation on the two surveys used in the study (volume 4 contains the survey instruments and appendix B of volume 2 describes the instrument development process). Part 1 of this volume, covering the survey of separate day and residential facilities, comprises the bulk of the document. It begins with an overview of survey instruments and procedures. It then presents the procedures for editing and coding each of the survey documents, provides question-by-question instructions for use in reviewing questionnaires and telephone interview documents, and supplies documentation for data files. Part 2, the survey of the special education divisions of the State education agencies, contains the survey instrument coded according to data received, a description of survey procedures, an explanation of coding conventions for each question in the survey, and data file specifications.
