Academic Publication

This journal article uses longitudinal data from Washington state to investigate the relationships among career and technical education (CTE) enrollment, inclusion in general education, and high school and postsecondary outcomes for students with learning disabilities. Researchers replicated earlier findings that students with learning disabilities who were enrolled in a "concentration" of CTE courses had higher rates of employment after graduation than observably similar students with learning disabilities who were enrolled in fewer CTE courses.

Report

This Statistics in Brief examines the distribution of college majors between the classes of 1992–93 and 2007–08. It also explores how the relatedness of 2007–08 bachelor’s degree recipients’ jobs to their college major differs from that of 1992–93 bachelor’s degree recipients, 4 years after receiving their bachelor's degrees.

Academic Publication

This journal article presents findings from a study of whether disability status and course delivery format affect course completion at a Historically Black College. The results show that students with disabilities are just as likely as peers without disabilities to complete courses, but students with disabilities were less likely to complete online versus traditionally delivered courses.
