Summary

This report presents an analysis blueprint for data provided by the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88), a survey system sponsored by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The report will inform beginning NELS:88 data users of the many substantive issues that can be addressed by the data, and it should present experienced researchers with promising ideas that can be explored through NELS:88 data. Other audiences may find the report useful in gaining an overview of the richness of NCES data in addressing education policy issues. The report, primarily the outcome of an NCES-sponsored conference, incorporates the more than 70 research issues discussed at the conference, and categorizes them into these broad areas: (1) secondary education; (2) transition from school to work; (3) postsecondary education; (4) career attainment and life cycle transition after college; (5) motivation, aspiration, self- concept, and other psychosocial issues; and (6) methodological research. The report is organized into four major sections. Section 1 presents information on the background and purpose of the report, and section 2 provides an overview of the NELS:88 database. Section 3 discusses the types and levels of analysis that can be conducted with NELS:88 data. Section 4 presents a list of issues related to the core six areas. Appendixes A-D include technical notes (including a glossary), data analysis suggestions, a discussion of the availability of documents and advice, and a listing of other NCES projects. Contains one figure and one table.) (SLD)
