Green, Patricia J.; And Others
The Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:93) tracks the experiences of a cohort of recent college graduates, those who received the baccalaureate degree during the 1992-93 academic year and were first interviewed as part of the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study. The experiences of this group in the areas of academic enrollment, degree completion, employment, public service, and other adult decisions will be followed for about 12 years. Data will be used to address issues in a number of educational policy areas such as educational attainment, access to graduate and professional schools, the rate of return on educational investment, and patterns of preparation and engagement in teaching. The B&B:93 cohort consisted of about 12,500 individuals who were determined to be potentially eligible for followup in 1994. Responses were obtained for 11,810 students. This report reviews: (1) the study purpose and design; (2) the B&B:93 sample design; (3) data collection: telephone and field survey procedures; (4) response rates; (5) evaluation of the survey instrument; (6) the transcript component of B&B:93/94; and (7) the weights development documentation for the B&B:93/94 sample. Four appendixes provide additional details about methodology and present the student and parent questionnaires in table form. (Contains 31 tables, 3 appendix tables, 5 figures, and 2 references.)
