A report examining the extent to which students with disabilities were included in accountability systems of states in which there were high stakes for educational systems. This was the first such report by the National Center on Educational Outcomes (NCEO). A search was conducted of states' education Web sites and direct links to their Web sites, examining the indicators on which states collected information (e.g., student indicators, staff indicators, program indicators, and use of resources indicators) as well as the consequences provided by the states (e.g., rewards, assistance, or sanctions).
The Center is supported through a Cooperative Agreement
(#H326G000001) with the Research to Practice Division, Office of
Special Education Programs, U.S. Department of Education. Opinions
expressed herein do not necessarily reflect those of the U.S. Department
of Education or Offices within it.
