Mullens, John E.; Kasprzyk, Daniel
The Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) was designed by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) to provide recurrent information about public and private elementary and secondary schools, teachers, and administrators. The NCES commissioned these papers to examine the SASS and to make recommendations about its future. The following papers, presented at 1996 NCES seminars, are included: (1) "Should SASS Measure Instructional Processes and Teacher Effectiveness?" (Susan Stodolsky); (2) "Toward an Organizational Database on America's Schools: A Proposal for the Future of SASS, with Comments on School Reform, Governance, and Finance" (David P. Baker); (3) "Technology for K-12 Education: Asking the Right Questions" (Kathleen Fulton); (4) "Linking Student Data to SASS: Why, When, How" (Phillip Kaufman); (5) "Making Data Relevant for Policy Discussions: Recommendations for Redesigning the School Administrator Questionnaire for the 1998-99 SASS" (Henry Zheng); (6) "Measures of Inservice Professional Development: Suggested Items for the 1998-99 Schools and Staffing Survey" (Dorothy M. Gilford); (7) "District-Level Data in the Schools and Staffing Survey" (J.

Blank); (9) "Collecting Representative Data on School Resources: Understanding the Linkage between Adequacy, Equity, and Opportunity To Learn through SASS" (Jay G. Chambers); (10) "The Schools and Staffing Survey for 1998-99: Design Recommendations To Inform Broad Education Policy" (Erling E.
