Analysis of the Survey of 1986-87 Bachelor's Degree Recipients.
Ott, Mary Diederich
Recent bachelor's degree recipients from the University of Maryland at College Park (UMCP) were surveyed approximately 1 year after graduation. Surveys of those who received their degrees in summer or fall 1986 or spring 1987 were primarily concerned with education, employment, and evaluation of experiences at UMCP. The information is presented under the headings of demographic data, financial aid, educational activities and plans, employment, teacher certification, other concerns, and evaluation of educational experiences. Some of the highlights of the survey results are: 55% of respondents reported receiving one or more type of financial aid; 81% planned to earn a higher degree or graduate certificate; 34% had re-enrolled in postsecondary institutions; 82% were employed full time and 9% were employed part time; 55% indicated they would major in the same undergraduate field again; 68% said that if they were to do it again, they would attend UMCP for their undergraduate education; and 90% rated their satisfaction with the library as good or excellent. A questionnaire for recent alumni and a letter from the Chancellor of the University of Maryland asking for participation in the survey are appended. Contains 61 tables and 1 reference. (SM)
