Matching State Goals to a Model of Outcomes and Indicators for Grade 8. Technical Report 16.
Seppanen, Patricia; And Others
A national survey of state-articulated student goals and outcomes led to the analysis of documents from 30 states for correspondence with the outcomes specified for grade 8 in the conceptual model developed by the National Center on Educational Outcomes for Students with Disabilities (NCEO). All of the 30 states' goal documents included statements that corresponded to the NCEO outcome domain of Academic and Functional Literacy. Fifty to 75 percent of the states specified goals that corresponded to Presence and Participation, Responsibility and Independence, Contribution and Citizenship, and Personal and Social Adjustment. Few states identified goals matched to Accommodation and Adaptation or to Satisfaction. Correspondence at the outcome and indicator levels also varied, though weak correspondence 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 levels of domains, outcomes, and indicators for the following states: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia. Reports of the document analysis done for each of these states are provided. (DB)
