Summary

This report provides an overview of a selection of measurement error studies conducted on National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) surveys. Its intent is not to offer new analyses of program data, but to summarize information from internal memoranda, working papers, and adjudicated reports about errors of measurement that occur during five phases of survey operations: sample selection; data collection; data processing; estimation and analysis; and dissemination of results and postsurvey evaluation. The report illustrates the diversity of NCES efforts in this area and focuses on the major national surveys NCES conducts. The emphasis of the review is on reinterview studies, but other types of empirical studies of measurement error are discussed, including multiple indicators studies, record check studies, and cognitive studies. The following chapters are included: (1) "Introduction and Overview"; (2) "Profile of NCES Reinterview Studies"; (3) "Reinterview Studies: Simple Response Variance and Response Bias"; (4) "Reinterview Studies: Reliability and Validity"; (5) "Multiple Indicators' Studies"; (6) "Record Check Studies"; (7) "Cognitive Studies"; and (8) "Summary." An appendix presents a summary of a reinterview study on mode effects for the 1990-91 Schools and Staffing Survey. (Contains 60 tables, 1 exhibit, 31 figures, 4 tables in the appendix, and 102 references.) (SLD)
