Public Use Data Set User's Manual.
Consortium on Chicago School Research, IL.
In spring 1999 the Consortium on Chicago School Research conducted surveys of students in grades 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 and all teachers and principals in the Chicago Public Schools. In all, 54,660 elementary school students, 18,187 high school students, 7,905 elementary school teachers, 2,009 high school teachers, and 315 principals completed the surveys. The results have been used to provide individual school reports. The purpose of this manual is to provide some basic background into the development, distribution, and collection of the surveys, and more detailed information about the creation of the constructs and other variables reported in the individual school reports. The public use data set contains student and teacher data and school-level aggregates. Any information that could be used to identify individual students or teachers has been removed. The manual contains discussions of developing the surveys and data collection procedures. Reports based on the data are described, and both teacher measures and student measures are outlined. An appendix, not included in the Web version of the manual, contains the coded surveys. (SLD)
