This report examines the sequence of courses that high school graduates take in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through their high school years using data from the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) High School Transcript Study. The 44-page report starts with an executive summary highlighting the report’s key findings and follows with a more detailed analysis of each summary finding. Clearly designed, with informative, easy-to-read graphs and tables, the report provides insight into how students are engaging with different components of STEM throughout school.
