The Quality Assessment of the 1973 Survey of Graduate Science Student Support Survey.
Daley, James M.
In this paper, the steps implemented by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) to upgrade the quality of the 1973 Graduate Science Student Support Survey are cited. Changes which were incorporated into the survey were intended to increase the scope and accuracy of data collected. To verify the coverage, a list of the institutions that made up the population surveyed in 1973 was compared with lists of Ph.D.-granting institutions maintained by federal agencies and professional associations with an interest in higher education. Discripancies were checked by telephone inquiry and adjustments in the survey base were made. The second major component of the study was to reconstruct the 1973 survey responses from departmental records for a sample of departments and to compare the resulting data with that which had been reported by the department. Also, selected student interviews were held in order to make comparisons with departmental records. (Author/CP)
