A document reporting on National Center on Educational Outcomes' (NCEO) fourth study of state graduation requirements for students with disabilities. This national study was designed to describe current variations across states in high school exit exam practices and the use of alternative diploma/credentialing options. The study also examines the intended and unintended consequences for students when they are required to pass exit exams to receive a high school diploma, and the intended and unintended consequences of using single or multiple diploma options for students with disabilities.
This paper is based on a research project entitled, “Intended and Unintended
Consequences of the No Child Left Behind Act on Systems,
Education and Students with Disabilities” (H324C040177), from the
Office of Special Education Programs, U.S. Department of Education.
The development of this report was also supported, in part, through the
Cooperative Agreement (#H326G050007) to the National Center on
Educational Outcomes from the Research to Practice Division, Office of
Special Education Programs, U.S. Department of Education. Opinions
