ALTS


Summary reports from the AccessSTEM/AccessComputing/DO-IT Longitudinal Transition Study (ALTS) are regularly updated and then published online. Research questions addressed by ALTS include:

The progress of ALTS respondents are compared with that of participants in the National Longitudinal Transition Study (NLTS) and NLTS2 for whom postsecondary education was part of their transition plan while they were still in high school. Specifically, NLTS2 is documenting the experiences of a national sample of students with disabilities who were 13 to 16 years of age in 2000 as they move from secondary school into adult roles.
