Educational Outcomes and Indicators for Students Completing School.
National Center on Educational Outcomes, Minneapolis, MN.
This document presents a model of school completion outcomes and the indicators of these outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities. School completion is defined in a number of ways, including Grade 12, end of school, and time of "aging out" of eligibility for educational services. The document includes a conceptual model in which educational resources influence educational opportunity and process, which in turn influence the school completion outcome domains, which have a return influence on both the resources and opportunity/process. Outcome domains include: presence and participation, accommodation and adaptation, physical health, responsibility and independence, contribution and citizenship, academic and functional literacy, personal and social adjustment, and satisfaction. Several outcomes are listed for each domain, and several possible indicators are listed for each outcome, with indicators generally being percentages or rates representing outcomes. Steps toward identifying sources of data for indicators are then outlined. The document concludes with an outline of plans to identify outcomes and indicators for several other developmental levels, a list of contributors to the development of school completion outcomes, and a list of six supporting documents.
