Three new scripts have been added to the R resource section:
These files have been developed to support the analysis of achievement or context by Special Education categories.
Each of the scripts takes your ISD file and:
- recodes the Special Education IEP Types into a single column with each IEP Type labeled.
- recodes the Special Education IEP Type into a single column by the Ministry categories of exceptionalities (http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/general/elemsec/speced/guide/specedpartae.pdf page A18).
- creates a new file with the two new recoded variables appended to all the ISD variables.
- creates a new smaller file with fields of interest (this file is useful in constructing cohort data sets).
