This article applies to:
During the collection of normative data used by the CAMCI-Research system, a specific convention was used when assigning the level of education in order to avoid differences in assignment between subjects. Use of this or a similar convention is recommended during subject registration:
|Highest Education Level Completed||Years of Education Assigned|
|No Held Diploma||Relative to the year when the subject left school (e.g., a subject who left school in the 9thgrade, and later received a GED would be assigned 9 years of education).|
|GED||Relative to the year when the subject left school (e.g., a subject who left school in the 9thgrade, and later received a GED would be assigned 9 years of education).|
|High School/Secondary School Diploma||12|
NOTE: This classification includes training of less than 4-6 months in a certification or qualification program obtained by a person to perform a task (e.g., cosmetology).
|High School/Secondary School + Additional Study (of at least 1 academic term-1 year at a post-secondary institution)||13|
NOTE: This classification does NOT include brief training of less than 4-6 months in a certification or qualification program (see High School Diploma above)
|Technical School / Trade Certificate||13-14 (as some technical schools and certificate programs vary in length)|
|Associate’s Degree||14 (2-year program)|
|Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Science||16 (4-year program)|
|Master of Arts / Master of Science||18 (2-year program following Bachelor’s degree)|
|Post Graduate Degree (PhD, PsyD, etc.)||20 (4-year program following Bachelor’s degree)|
