Title: ECLS-K:2011 Fifth-Grade Hearing Evaluations Component Restricted-Use Data File
Description: Hearing evaluations were conducted on a subsample of study children in the spring fifth-grade round of data collection. The ECLS-K:2011 fifth-grade hearing evaluations component restricted-use data file includes all of the hearing evaluation data collected during the spring 2016 round, including: responses from children to a set of pre-test questions intended to identify conditions that might affect either how the evaluation should be conducted or how the results should be interpreted; results from otoscopy, a brief visual examination of the ear; results from tympanometry, an automated test of middle ear function; results from pure tone air conduction audiometry; and results of a screener for specific language impairment. The hearing evaluations data are provided in an ASCII text file (Y5_hearingevaluation.DAT). A program that must be run in a statistical software package to input the ASCII text file and produce an analytic data file is provided in three formats: SAS, SPSS, and Stata. This file is intended to be used in conjunction with a main longitudinal restricted-use ECLS-K:2011 data file, for example the ECLS-K:2011 kindergarten-fifth grade restricted-use data file (NCES 2019-100).
