Considerations for Using the School Courses for the Exchange of Data (SCED) Classification System in High School Transcript Studies: Applications for Converting Course Codes from the Classification of Secondary School Courses (CSSC)
This National Center for Education Statistics report describes two course coding systems used to analyze high school transcripts: the School Courses for the Exchange of Data (SCED) and the Classification of Secondary School Courses (CSSC). The report also discusses the development of a crosswalk that enables data coded with the first system to be translated to the second.
