The High School and Beyond (HSB) Transcripts Survey (1982) data file is provided. The data file contains high school transcript data for a sample of students in the 1980 Sophomore Cohort of the HSB study. Two different record types are included in the Transcripts file: (1) "Type 1" records; and (2) "Type 2" records. For each student in the file, there is a single "Type 1" record, which contains some variables from the HSB student file, plus general information collected from each student's transcript, including information on absenteeism, class rank, grade point average, and scores on selected college entrance examinations and advanced placement tests. Multiple "Type 2" records are present for each student, one for each course reported. "Type 2" records contain the year the course was taken, a special program indicator for the course, a set of flags indicating when and for how long the student was enrolled in the course, credit earned by completing the course, and the grade received.
