Applications Open for New NAEP High School Transcript Study Data Training Workshop

Applications Open for New NAEP High School Transcript Study Data Training Workshop

The first NAEP High School Transcript Study (HSTS) Data Training Workshop hosted by the NAEP R&D program will take place on June 21–23, 2023, in Arlington, VA. If you’re interested in learning more about the HSTS special study and conducting analyses using HSTS data, check out the workshop and consider applying before the deadline on May 14!

The HSTS is a periodic survey of U.S. high school curricula and coursetaking patterns, providing an in-depth look at earned credits, grade point averages, and the relationship between graduates’ achievement and coursetaking. The HSTS was most recently conducted in 2019, when it collected transcripts from a nationally representative sample of 47,000 high school students from about 1,400 schools. You can learn more about the HSTS and look at the most recent data on the NCES website here.

The NAEP HSTS Data Training Workshop is intended for quantitative researchers with strong statistical skills—graduate students, education researchers, analysts, and those interested in large-scale assessment data. The training will introduce participants to the HSTS and its relationship to NAEP, guide participants in using data analysis strategies relevant to the HSTS, and offer hands-on practice working with the 2019 HSTS data files using R and EdSurvey. Participants will also get an introduction to the 2019 HSTS restricted-use data files and learn about funding opportunities for education research. Past participants of our NAEP Data Training Workshop will find that the NAEP HSTS Data Training Workshop is a great way to build on their NAEP knowledge and their experience with EdSurvey and NAEP data analyses. You can learn more, see a draft agenda, and apply to participate here.
