Information Regarding NCES PETS:09 Studies:
In response to several inquiries by IPEDS Keyholders to NCES regarding a study for which you or your office may be contacted, NCES is sharing the following information: NCES is currently collecting transcripts for students participating in our two postsecondary longitudinal sample studies, the 2008/09 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:08/09) and the 2004/09 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:04/09). The transcripts collection component of these two studies is called the 2009 Postsecondary Education Transcript Study (PETS:09). Approximately 3,000 institutions will be included in PETS:09. Across both studies, we expect to collect transcripts for approximately 45,000 postsecondary students. These studies are being conducted by RTI International on behalf of NCES. To find out more about PETS go to https://surveys.nces.ed.gov/pets/. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Wine, the PETS:09 Project Director, at 1-919-541-6870 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
