Title:  The 2000 High School Transcript Study Tabulations: Comparative Data on Credits Earned and Demographics for 2000, 1998, 1994, 1990, 1987, and 1982 High School Graduates.
Description: The NAEP High School Transcript Study (HSTS), a program conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), is designed to examine the high school course offerings and course-taking patterns of graduating seniors in a representative sample of schools across the nation. In addition, the HSTS provides valuable information about the rigor of high school curricula, including both academic and vocational courses. The HSTS is linked to grade 12 NAEP results to provide information on the relationship between student course-taking patterns and achievement. Providing findings from six separate data collections, the study has been helpful to a diverse audience including teachers, curriculum specialists, parents, researchers, and policymakers. The 2000 High School Transcript Study Tabulations provide a large number of tables that summarize the course-taking patterns of high school graduates in 2000 and compare them to those of their counterparts in 1982, 1987, 1990, 1994, and 1998. The report also provides data tables describing the relationship of the course-taking patterns of 2000 graduates to their proficiencies in mathematics and science as measured by the 2000 NAEP assessments.
