NCES 2018029 Public-Use Data Files and Documentation (FRSS 108): Career and Technical Education Programs in Public School Districts
This file contains data from a Fast Response Survey System (FRSS) survey titled "Career and Technical Education Programs in Public School Districts." This survey provides nationally representative data on career and technical education (CTE) programs. NCES released the results of this survey in the First Look report "Career and Technical Education Programs in Public School Districts: 2016–17" (NCES 2018-028).

Questionnaires and cover letters were mailed to the superintendent of each sampled district in January 2017. The letter stated the purpose of the study and requested that the questionnaire be completed by the person in the district most knowledgeable about career and technical education (CTE) programs for high school students. Respondents were asked to respond for the current 2016–17 school year and the summer of 2016. Respondents were offered options of completing the survey on paper or online. Telephone follow-up for survey nonresponse and data clarification was initiated in February 2017 and completed in June 2017. The weighted response rate was 86 percent.

The survey defines a CTE program as a sequence of courses at the high school level that provides students with the academic and technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers in current or emerging professions. For this survey, districts were instructed to include all CTE programs that the district offers to high school students, including programs provided by the district or by other entities (such as an area/regional CTE center, a consortium of districts, or a community or technical college). The survey data provides information about the entities that provide the CTE programs and the locations at which the CTE programs are offered to high school students. It also presents data about work-based learning activities and employer involvement in CTE programs, as well as barriers to the district offering CTE programs and barriers to student participation in CTE programs. Data are also presented about the extent to which various factors influence the district’s decisions on whether to add or phase out CTE programs.

NCES 2018141 HSLS:09 Base Year to Second Follow-up Restricted-use Data File
This release includes the most recent data from the High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09), collected as part of the Second Follow-up. HSLS:09 follows a nationally representative sample of students who were ninth-graders in fall 2009 from the beginning of high school into higher education and the workforce. The second follow-up was conducted from March 2016 through January 2017, approximately 3 years after high school graduation for most of the cohort. The data collected allow researchers to examine an array of young-adulthood outcomes among fall 2009 ninth-graders, including delayed high school completion, postsecondary enrollment, early postsecondary persistence and attainment, labor market experiences, family formation, and family financial support.

NCES 2018122 Analyzing U.S. Young Adults' Skills by Student and Employment Status: Methodology for a New PIAAC Variable with Initial Results
The Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) is a cyclical, large-scale study of adult cognitive skills and life experiences. The study focuses on cognitive skills in three domains: literacy, numeracy, and problem solving in technology-rich environments. The purpose of this report is to provide researchers a simple and efficient way of investigating policy issues related to young adults (age 16-34) and their transition into the labor force using PIAAC data. In particular, the report introduces a student-and-employment status variable, explains how this variable was developed, and illustrates the use of the variable, reporting skills by student and employment status. The initial PIAAC 2012/2014 First Look report was released in 2016.

The ECLS-K:2011 third-grade hearing evaluations component restricted-use data file includes all of the hearing evaluation data collected during the spring 2014 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; and results from pure tone air conduction audiometry. The hearing evaluations data are provided in an ASCII text file (K2011hearing3rd.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-third grade restricted-use data file (NCES 2016-080).
