Kelly, Heather A.; Walters, Allison M.
New Directions for Institutional Research, n169 p37-50 2016
Comprehensive data are essential to answer questions from prospective students, parents, and private and public entities about the cost of college and students' return on investment, as well as to demonstrate how colleges and universities are helping to prepare the future workforce. An evolutionary data-collection process, efforts to improve the distribution of results, and implications will be discussed to inform public research universities hoping to begin or refine a first-destination survey.
