Matching State Goals to a Model of Outcomes and Indicators for the Post-School Level. Technical Report 12.
Seppanen, Patricia; And Others
A 1994 national survey collected copies of 36 states' student outcomes, standards, or goals documents. Two states, Florida and Indiana, and the District of Columbia included information related to goals, outcomes, standards, or indicators that could be compared to the National Center on Educational Outcomes for Students with Disabilities (NCEO) conceptual model at the post-school level. Goals from state documents were matched to NCEO domains, outcomes, and indicators. Only one NCEO domain (Presence and Participation) matched to the two states' and the District's goals at the post-school level. Only one NCEO outcome, "Is employed" matched to all three areas' goals. None of the NCEO indicators was matched to the goals of all three areas, and only two indicators were matched to two states: Percent of individuals in the workforce and Percent of individuals who obtain basic life necessities. Overall, the study found an apparent lack of correspondence at the outcome and indicator levels, though this may have been more due to the degree of specificity used by states than a lack of conceptual congruence with the NCEO model. Charts and graphs compare the congruence at the outcome domain, outcome, and indicator levels for the District of Columbia, Florida, and Indiana. Reports of the document analysis done for each of these areas are provided. (DB)
