Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC.
This handbook is an effort to establish current and consistent terms, definitions, and classification codes to maintain, collect, report, and exchange comparable information about students. It is a reference guide to those concerned with the collection of student data. Definitions reflect a consensus about best practice in the field of education as well as current Federal reporting requirements. Information is included about designing student record-keeping systems for schools, school districts, or other educational institutions. The handbook is not a data collection instrument, nor does it reflect any Federal data collection requirements. There are descriptions of applications of the handbook, including the development of surveys and design of automated record systems. Twelve appendixes provide lists of contributors and technical information about data reporting. (SLD)
