Title: Profiles of Students with Disabilities as Identified in NELS:88
Description: The primary purposes of this report are to identify those students in NELS:88 who had or may have had a disabling condition or received services related to such a condition, and to examine their characteristics and their educational experiences and outcomes, as they progressed from the eighth grade in 1988 into and out of high school in 1992. Another purpose is to examine the alternative perceptions of disability status that are available from the four different respondent groups in NELS:88 (parents, teachers, students, and school officials) and to assess the extent to which these various perceptions affect descriptions of the characteristics, experiences, and outcomes of students with disabilities.
