Welcome to NCRA’s School Resources Center, where court reporting schools can find a wide array of resources to assist them with promoting their programs, their students, and the profession.


NCRA Reports

NCRA's Annual School Reports are compiled from data submitted by NCRA-approved court reporting programs. In addition to providing information on educational trends, the reports include statistics on student enrollment, graduation rates, and membership. Get an overview of NCRA's ongoing and planned initiatives for fostering success in our schools.

The Industry Outlook Report is an executive summary of the court reporting industry. The purpose of this study is to create an industry report for the National Court Reporters Association and its membership that captures both the current state of the profession as well as a near-term outlook of demand for stenographic court reporting services.


NCRA's Vision for Educational Excellence Task Force was asked to develop a vision for the future of court reporting education and identify steps that NCRA could take to make that vision a reality. Read the executive summary of the survey created to assess current practices and identify which of those practices actually drive positive student outcomes.
