This handbook is a major effort to establish current and consistent terms, definitions, and classification codes to maintain, collect, report, and exchange comparable information about students. The selection of terms represents the best combined judgment of many individuals as to what data might be most useful for decision making about instruction and support services for students. The primary section of this handbook is the listing of terms and definitions. In addition, there are applications of the handbook including development of surveys and design of automated record systems. The handbook is not a data collection instrument, and does not reflect any type of federal data maintenance requirements. This "infobase" version of the handbook allows users to browse, search, annotate, print, and export information electronically. Installation instructions and a quick-look reference system for handbook use are included. (SLD)
