The High School Transcript Study: A Decade of Change in Curricula and Achievement, 1990-2000 - This report presents findings from the 2000 High School Transcript Study (HSTS 2000) and examines the trends and changes in high school curriculum and student coursetaking patterns from 1990 to 2000. The study indicates that graduates examined in each racial subgroup earned increasingly more course credits and posted higher gradepoint averages. In addition, researchers identified a strong positive correlation between graduates' math and science GPAs and their NAEP 2000 math and science assessment scores. Some of the study’s findings are summarized on The NAEP High School Transcript Study Web site which offers fast facts on trends in coursetaking, gradepoint averages and the link between high school NAEP scores and coursetaking.
