Changes in Course-Taking, 1982-1988 in High Schools with Middle- and Low-Achieving Students in States Adopting High Graduation Requirements. Appendix E: High School Transcript Data Tables.
Clune, William H.; And Others
This statistical appendix is meant to accompany "Changes in Course-Taking, 1982-88: a Study of Transcript Data from Selected Schools and States." The study was designed to provide quantitative data from transcripts about changes in course-taking among graduates of high schools enrolling mostly lower-achieving students in states adopting high graduation requirements during the 1980s. Random samples of approximately 25 transcripts of graduating seniors were collected from 16 schools, in 9 districts, in 4 states (California, Florida, Missouri, and Pennsylvania) at 3 points in time, allowing change to be observed in two 4-year periods just prior to and after the requirements became effective. To provide data about students more "typical" than high school graduates, random samples of transcripts were collected of approximately 50 students beginning 9th grade at 2 points in time, 1 cohort prior to the effective date of the requirements and 1 cohort whose course-taking would be bound by the requirements, if they graduated. The study analyzes course-taking of low-achieving students from 1982-88 in all subjects; however, it focuses primarily on changes in course-taking in math, science, and vocational courses. The districts and schools are assigned numbers, and the names are not revealed. (Author/MLF)
