NCEO Technical Reports: Inclusion of Students with Disabilities in National and State Data Collection Programs (#2)
Part of the NCEO Technical Reports series.
- Kevin McGrew, Martha L Thurlow, James Shriner, Amy Spiegel
This year 1992 report summarizes the extent to which individuals with disabilities were represented in national and state data collection programs. After 30 different data collection programs were identified for potential evaluation, 9 of them were reviewed. The extent to which students with disabilities were included in state outcomes assessment activities was evaluated through a survey of state directors of special education. Findings include statistics on the percent of students with disabilities being excluded, issues related to exclusion guidelines, and issues stemming from the lack of representation of students with disabilities in national outcome measures.
