Kalton, Graham; Winglee, Marianne; Krawchuk, Sheila; Levine, Daniel
A 1994 report, "Quality Profile for SASS, Aspects of the Quality of Data in the Schools and Staffing Surveys (SASS)," presented and summarized the available information about the quality of the data from the five surveys that made up the SASS in its first two rounds of data collection (1987-1988 and 1990-1991). This report updates the information from that report and incorporates information about the quality of data from the surveys of the third round of the SASS. Following an introduction, the report contains a section evaluating data quality and providing background information for each of the surveys: (1) the School Survey; (2) the School Principal Survey; (3) the Teacher Demand and Shortage Survey; (4) the Teacher Survey; (5) the Teacher Follow-Up Survey; (6) the Library Survey; and (7) the Student Records Survey. A final chapter considers the quality of data in the SASS overall. (Contains 1 figure, 91 tables, and 165 references.) (SLD)
