NCES 2022080REV A Retrospective Look at U.S. Education Statistics
This commemorative guide provides an overview of the history and use of federal education statistics that have been collected and reported by the federal education statistics agency (now the National Center for Education Statistics) since 1868. The “statistical profiles” in this report use updated historical trend data from 120 Years of American Education: A Statistical Portrait to offer an in-depth look at what each statistic measures, how it has been collected over the years, and what the data reveal about the statistic. First published with nine statistical profiles in November 2022, the report was updated in April 2024 to include additional content. Examples of statistics covered in the report include elementary and secondary student enrollment and achievement; high school graduates and graduation rates, and postsecondary student costs, degrees conferred, and finances. Readers can browse these profiles online and download PDFs of individual profiles.

NCES 2024022 High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09): A First Look at the 2021 Postsecondary Enrollment, Completion, and Financial Aid Outcomes of Fall 2009 Ninth-Graders
This First Look report provides selected findings from the High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09) Postsecondary Education Administrative Records Collection (PEAR). HSLS:09 follows a nationally representative sample of students who were ninth-graders in fall 2009 from high school into postsecondary education and the workforce. The PEAR data collection was conducted in 2021, approximately 8 years after high school graduation for most of the cohort. These data provide information on whether fall 2009 ninth-graders enrolled in postsecondary education by June 2021, and allow researchers to examine enrollment characteristics, degree completion, and financial aid awards for the subset of fall 2009 ninth-graders who enrolled in postsecondary education.

NCES 2024019 High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09): Postsecondary Education Administrative Records Restricted-use Data File
This data file includes new data from the HSLS:09 Postsecondary Education Administrative Records collection (PEAR). The PEAR collection includes data from administrative records collected in 2021, 8 years after most of the HSLS:09 cohort had graduated from high school.

HSLS:09 follows a nationally representative sample of students who were in ninth grade in fall 2009 from high school into postsecondary education and the workforce. Key research topics for HSLS:09 include secondary-to-postsecondary transition plans and the evolution of those plans; paths into and out of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) studies and careers; and the relationship between students’ educational and social experiences in high school and their plans for and experiences in postsecondary education, work, and life. The PEAR collection includes information on whether fall 2009 ninth-graders ever enrolled in postsecondary education, as well as information about enrollment characteristics, degree completion, and financial aid awards for the subset of fall 2009 ninth-graders who attended postsecondary education.

NCES 2023115 Highlights of PISA 2022 U.S. Results
This web report provides key comparative information on the reading, mathematics, and science literacy performance of 15-year-old students in the United States and 80 other participating education systems. The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is sponsored by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and focuses on students as they are nearing the end of compulsory schooling. PISA is conducted every 3 years, with 2022 being the latest round. In PISA 2022, the major domain was mathematics literacy, although reading and science literacy were also assessed. In addition to national average scores, PISA also provides insight into the percentage of students who reach each of the PISA proficiency levels.

NCES 2022003 Restricted-Use Data Files and Documentation (FRSS 110): 2019-20 Public School Use of Educational Technology for Instruction
This product contains data from the Fast Response Survey System (FRSS) survey titled “Use of Educational Technology for Instruction.” The restricted-use data file and related data documentation provide nationally representative data from elementary and secondary public schools about their use of technology for teaching and learning during the 2019–20 school year. Data were collected in the spring of 2020 from approximately 800 schools. Questions were asked about conditions before the coronavirus pandemic started. Schools that completed the survey after the coronavirus pandemic started were asked to report about pre-pandemic experiences. More specifically, schools were asked about their technology resources and ways that these resources were used to teach. Data reflect questions about whether schools have computers for each student, if students can take school-provided computers home, the number of computers in the school and where they are in the school, the quality of computers and software used for teaching and learning, how well internet connections work in the parts of the school used for teaching, and online resources used for teaching and learning at the school. Data also include answers to questions about challenges teachers face using technology for teaching, how teachers are trained to use technology for teaching, the types of staff who work with teachers to make better use of technology for teaching and learning, and how student learning is affected by the use of educational technology. Respondents were principals or other school staff who knew how technology was used at the school for teaching and learning. Documentation provides information about the purpose of the study, the sample design, the data collection procedures, the data processing procedures, response rates, imputation, weighting and standard error calculation and use, the data files and codebooks, and the file layout of the ASCII data file. The ASCII data and a SAS version of the data file are also provided. Note that the public-use version of the data under NCES-2022011 has much of the same information. The restricted-use file has an NCES school ID and Census region information not included in the public-use data.
