NCES 2010028 The Condition of Education 2010
The Condition of Education 2010 summarizes important developments and trends in education using the latest available data. The report presents 49 indicators on the status and condition of education, in addition to a special section on high-poverty schools. The indicators represent a consensus of professional judgment on the most significant national measures of the condition and progress of education for which accurate data are available. The 2009 print edition includes 49 indicators in five main areas: (1) participation in education; (2) learner outcomes; (3) student effort and educational progress; (4) the contexts of elementary and secondary education; and (5) the contexts of postsecondary education.

NCES 2009088 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2003: U.S. Nonresponse Bias Analysis
This report is concerned with the extent of potential bias introduced into the 2003 U.S. study through nonresponse on the part of schools and students. Three bias analyses were conducted to address the issues of school nonresponse, student nonresponse, as well as possible achievement differences between students in the spring and fall testing sessions. The analysis compares selected characteristics likely to reflect bias in participation from participating and nonparticipating schools. The results suggest that there is little potential for nonresponse bias in the PISA original participating sample based on the characteristics studied. The results also suggest that, based on the characteristics studied, there is some potential for nonresponse bias in the PISA student sample, using base weights.

NCES 2009063 Adult Literacy and Lifeskills Survey (ALL) 2003: U.S. Nonresponse Bias Analysis
This report provides the results of a systematic analysis of bias due to the nonresponding persons in the 2003 ALL sample. The ALL estimates of literacy-related skills in the United States are subject to potential bias due to nonresponse at various levels of data collection. The ALL survey estimates of literacy-related skills are subject to unit nonresponse from the screener, background questionnaire (BQ), and assessment, and also subject to item nonresponse to BQ items. The unit analyses were composed of a bivariate analysis, multivariate analysis, and an analysis of the weighting effects on nonresponse bias. The item analyses included a similar study into the effect of nonresponse. The general conclusion of the unit analysis is that the potential amount of nonresponse bias due to unit nonresponse in ALL is likely to be negligible. The item nonresponse analysis revealed some low response rates in certain domains and some indication that a potential for bias may exist.

NCES 2008084 Status and Trends in the Education of American Indians and Alaska Natives: 2008
This report examines both the educational progress of American Indian/Alaska Native children and adults and challenges in their education. It shows that over time more American Indian/Alaska Native students have gone on to college and that their attainment expectations have increased. Despite these gains, progress has been uneven and differences persist between American Indian/Alaska Native students and students of other racial/ethnic groups on key indicators of educational performance.

NCES 2008041 Recent Participation in Formal Learning Among Working-Age Adults with Different Levels of Education
This issue brief uses data from the 2001 and 2005 adult education surveys of the National Household Education Surveys Program (NHES) to examine the participation of adults in formal learning activities during the 12 months preceding the survey, focusing on the participation of adults who at the end of the survey had the lowest levels of education (no high school diploma, or a GED). These adults with low levels of education were found to have participated at relatively high rates in adult basic education, ESL, and GED classes. However, for the most common types of formal learning activities—work-related courses and personal interest courses—adults with low levels of education participated at lower rates and for shorter periods of time than did adults with higher levels of education. Among the adults who did participate in these activities, those with lower levels of education at the end of the survey were less likely than those with higher levels of education to pay at least some course expenses themselves.

NCES 2008346 Education Longitudinal Study of 2002/06: Restricted Use Second Follow-up Data Files, Data File Documentation, and Electronic Codebook System
This ELS:2002/2004 CDROM contains a revised version of the restricted-use base-year to second follow-up data that were previously released. Manuals documenting the sample design of these data, how they were collected, and how they should be used are included. This documentation is public use and can be downloaded directly from the ELS website (http://nces.ed.gov/surveys/els2002 /manuals.asp).

The ELS:2002 longitudinal study is designed to monitor a national sample of young people as they progress from tenth grade through high school and on to postsecondary education and/or the world of work. By the third follow-up in 2012, these young people will be in their mid-twenties.

Users of the original second follow-up restricted-use data (NCES 2008-346) can obtain this revised version (NCES 2008-346r) by requesting it from the IES Data Security Office (IESData.Security@ed.gov). Nearly all of the changes that have been made in the original data are in base year and first follow-up variables and not transcript or second follow-up variables.

However, none of these changes affect data that were originally released in the base year to first follow-up restricted-use data (NCES 2006-430 ), or the transcript restricted-use data (NCES-2006-351).

NCES 2007044 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2003 Nonresponse Bias Analysis
This technical report explores the extent of potential bias introduced into the U.S. TIMSS study through nonresponse on the part of schools. Data from the third cycle of TIMSS, conducted in April-June, 2003, are the basis for the analyses. The analyses compare selected characteristics likely to reflect bias in participation from participating and non-participating schools. Two forms of analysis were undertaken: a test of the independence of each school characteristic and participation status, and logistic regression in which the conditional independence of selected school characteristics as predictors of participation was examined. The investigation into nonresponse bias at the school level for U.S. TIMSS 2003 samples for grades 4 and 8 shows that there was no statistically significant relationship detected between participation status and the majority of school characteristics that are available for analysis.
