Texas Effectiveness Study: Interim Report, 1996-97.
Texas Education Service Center Region XI, Fort Worth.
This interim report summarizes the first-year findings and activities for the Adult Outcome Component of the Texas Effectiveness Study, implemented during the 1996-97 school year. The Adult Outcome component is one of three components of the Texas Effectiveness Study that will provide information about the outcomes of special education in Texas. The study gives a description of special education students who make the transition from school to adult life. The description begins with student records from the last year of high school, followed by information gathered from these students and their families about the transition to adult life. The adult outcome sample included 918 students from 41 school districts, from whom 842 record review survey instruments were returned. Follow-up information is to be obtained for these students through questionnaires. This information will be joined with that from the other two components of the Texas Effectiveness Study, the in-school component and the case study component, to give a more complete picture of special education outcomes in Texas. Appendixes contain the project timeline, summary statistics, the data collection instrument, and descriptions of community types. (Contains 37 tables.) (SLD)
