NCES Statistical Standards.
Flemming, Emmett, Jr.
This notebook contains the revised standards and guidelines for the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), as well as an updated and consolidated version of NCES legislation. It is intended for NCES staff and contractors as a guide in their data collection, analysis, and dissemination. These standards and guidelines define the limits of acceptable applications and use, to ensure that NCES surveys, products, and procedures become more uniform and have higher quality. Twenty standards and two guidances were adopted in January 1992 in the following areas: (1) planning and testing; (2) contract management and operations; (3) statistical processing procedures; (4) data provisions and analysis; and (5) evaluation and documentation. The NCES legislation is provided. (SLD)
