Title:High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09) [United States]
Study Number:1298
Catalog Date:11/09/2011
Primary Investigator(s):United States Department of Education. National Center for Education Statistics (NCES)
Source:NCES
Abstract:"The High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09) is a nationally representative, longitudinal study of more than 21,000 9th graders in 944 schools who will be followed through their secondary and postsecondary years. The study focuses on understanding students' trajectories from the beginning of high school into postsecondary education, the workforce, and beyond. What students decide to pursue when, why, and how are crucial questions for HSLS:09, especially, but not solely, in regards to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses, majors, and careers. This study features a new student assessment in algebraic skills, reasoning, and problem solving and includes, like past studies, surveys of students, their parents, math and science teachers, school administrators, as well as a new survey of school counselors. The first wave of data collection for HSLS:09 began in the fall of 2009 and will produce not only a nationally representative dataset but also state representative datasets for each of ten states. The next data collection will occur in the spring of 2012.

HSLS:09 is the fifth in a series of secondary school longitudinal studies sponsored by NCES. The design of HSLS:09 is similar to past studies, such as NELS:88 and ELS:2002, with data provided by students and their parents, math and science teachers, and school staff - both administrators and counselors. However, HSLS:09 emphasizes math and science as well as preparation for postsecondary education and features the following innovations: 1) HSLS:09 is the first NCES-sponsored longitudinal study to begin with a 9th grade cohort; 2) School counselor input into students' decision-making about courses and postsecondary choices was collected; and 3) The mathematics assessment was developed specifically for this study and focuses on algebra skills critical to success in secondary and postsecondary education."
