NCES 2018086 English Language Program Participation Among Students in the Kindergarten Class of 2010–11: Spring 2011 to Spring 2012

The brief then examines the characteristics of the English language program (e.g., English as a second language, bilingual education, and dual-language education) that participating students were receiving in spring 2011 and changes in participation in these programs between spring 2011 and spring 2012. Data come from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 2010–11 (ECLS-K:2011), a longitudinal study that was designed to follow the same children from kindergarten through fifth grade.

NCEE 20184011 Preparing for Life after High School: The Characteristics and Experiences of Youth in Special Education. A Summary of Key Findings from the National Longitudinal Transition Study 2012
The National Longitudinal Transition Study 2012 (NLTS 2012) is the third study conducted over several decades to examine the characteristics, experiences, and post-high school outcomes of a nationally representative sample of youth with disabilities and is part of the congressionally-mandated National Assessment of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 2004 (IDEA 2004). The evaluation brief summarizes key findings from previously released report volumes describing youth with an individualized education program (IEP) and their activities in school in relation to other students without an IEP (Volume 1), across the federally defined disability groups (Volume 2), and over time (Volume 3).

The brief indicates that, although their engagement and use of school supports have increased over the past decade (2003-2012), high school youth with an IEP are more socioeconomically disadvantaged and less likely to have experiences and expectations associated with success after high school than were other students in 2012. Among the disability groups in 2012, youth with intellectual disability, autism, deaf-blindness, multiple disabilities, and orthopedic impairments were found to be most at-risk for not transitioning successfully beyond high school.

The report volumes are available at https://ies.ed.gov/ncee/pubs/20184007/

NCES 2018401 Debt After College: Employment, Enrollment, and Student-Reported Stress and Outcomes
These Web Tables present information obtained from the 2008/12 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:08/12) and provide estimates of financial, employment, and enrollment outcomes in the 4 years following graduation for graduates with various levels of student loan debt. The outcomes and decisions of 2007–08 bachelor’s degree recipients are of particular interest because this cohort completed college during the most recent economic recession, which can have implications for outcomes related to employment and additional education (Grusky, Western, and Wimer 2011). B&B:08/12 is a nationally representative, longitudinal sample survey of students who completed the requirements for a bachelor’s degree during the 2007–08 academic year. The data for this report are drawn from the second follow-up, which was conducted in 2012–13. Results are presented by the amount students borrowed, ratio of loan payment to monthly salary, occupation, postbaccalaureate enrollment characteristics, undergraduate institution control, bachelor’s degree major, and demographic characteristics.

NCES 2018091 ECLS-K:2011 Third-Grade Hearing Evaluations Component Restricted-Use Data File
Hearing evaluations were conducted on a subsample of study children in the spring third-grade round of data collection. 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).
