Availability of Data on School Completion Outcomes and Indicators. Technical Report 8.
Ysseldyke, James E.; And Others
This study examined the extent to which data are available for 77 indicators for all students, including students with disabilities, at the school completion level. Data managers from 36 states or territories reported that data are available for indicators in the Presence and Participation domain and the Contribution and Citizenship domain, but little data is available for the remaining six areas (Accommodation and Adaptation, Physical Health, Responsibility and Independence, Academic and Functional Literacy, Personal and Social Adjustment, and Satisfaction). Only 17 of the 77 indicators could be reported by at least seven states with minimal effort. Tables document the availability of data for each of the 77 indicators; the indicators for which at least seven states currently have data, could easily locate data, or could locate data with considerable effort; and each state's response concerning the level of availability of each indicator. It appears that new instruments and data collection systems will have to be established in order to document the extent to which students are reaching the outcomes valued by educators and parents.
