Ineligible Schools in the 2002 National Main Assessment

Some of the schools in the private school samples and the twelfth-grade public school sample were found to be ineligible (e.g., closed, not a regular school,1 no longer offering grade). The table below presents counts of ineligible schools by status for the twelfth-grade public school sample and the three private school samples.

Number and percentage of sampled public and private schools by grade, school type, and eligibility status: 2002

1 Educational facilities which are not "regular schools" include special education schools for severely disabled students, adult education centers, annexes, and other such facilities. These are generally screened out of the frame when that is possible to do definitively: otherwise they are sampled and then identified in the field as not regular.
NOTE: Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
