Matching State Goals to a Model of School Completion Outcomes and Indicators. Technical Report 9.
Spande, Gail E.; Thurlow, Martha L.
The National Center on Educational Outcomes (NCEO) has formulated a conceptual model of educational outcomes, including eight major domains, that is appropriate for all students, including those with disabilities. This document presents the results of matching 17 states' expected outcomes and the NCEO outcomes at the level of school completion. States included: Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia. The analysis was conducted by matching states' goals to NCEO's domains, outcomes, and indicators, and matching NCEO domains, outcomes, and indicators to state goals. In general, the matching activity suggests that there is considerable correspondence between domains and outcomes in the NCEO model and state outcomes. Each of the NCEO domains is addressed by at least two states, and the Academic and Functional Literacy domain is included in all 17 states' lists of expected outcomes. Most of the states had goals in at least five NCEO domains. There were few state outcomes that were not addressed in the NCEO model. (JDD)
