Ineligible Private Schools for the 2006 Assessment

The Private School Universe Survey (PSS) school file from which most of the sampled schools were drawn corresponds to the 2003-2004 school year, two years prior to the assessment school year. During the intervening period, some of these schools either closed, no longer offered the grade of interest, or were ineligible for other reasons. In such cases, the sampled schools were coded as ineligible.

The table below presents unweighted counts of sampled private schools by grade and eligibility status, including the reason for ineligibility.

The table below presents unweighted counts of sampled private schools by private school type, eligibility status, and grade. The differences are considerable across private school types.
