Biber, Melissa R.; Link, Michael W.; Riccobono, John A.; Siegel, Peter H.
This report describes and evaluates the methods and procedures used for the field test of the Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:2000/01). The B&B:2000/01 field test included important changes from previous B&B surveys (conducted in 1994 and 1997) in its sample design and collection of data. The introductory chapter describes the background, purposes, schedule, and products of the B&B:2000/01 study and the unique purposes of the field test. In chapter 2, the field test design and method are described. Overall outcomes of data collection, as well as results of special studies, are presented in chapter 3. Chapter 4 documents the quality of the data collected, and chapter 5 summarizes the major recommendations for changes in design for the full-scale study. Materials used during the field test are provided as five appendixes to the report, and cited, where appropriate, in the text. (Contains 33 tables and 6 figures.) (SLD)
