Research Triangle Institute International
Funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, the High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 is followed a cohort of students beginning as they entered 9th grade to better understand how their plans, background, and circumstances when they began high school were linked to their decisions about course-taking and to their plans and experiences following high school. The study emphasized mathematics achievement, course taking, and post-secondary decisions. RTI International is conducted the study. As a subcontractor, HRI designed questionnaires for the Base Year for science and mathematics teachers as well as school guidance counselors. For the First Follow-up, HRI designed questionnaires for school administrators and guidance counselors.
