Title:  Postsecondary Attainment, Attendance, Curriculum, and Performance: Selected Results From the NELS:88/2000 Postsecondary Education Transcript Study (PETS), 2000
Description: Using postsecondary transcript data collected as part of the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88), this tabular summary presents data on postsecondary attainment, attendance, curriculum, and performance of the NELS:88 sample members who attended postsecondary institutions. Postsecondary attainment is broken down by race/ethnicity, sex, and socioeconomic status for different categories of student attendance (based on number of credits and institutional type). Postsecondary attendance is examined through the number of institutions students attended and in the number of states they attended them, types of institutions attended, such as community colleges, and credits taken during the summer term. College course-taking patterns are broken down by high school course taking and by college major. Finally, postsecondary performance is examined through undergraduate GPA, remedial courses, and number of postsecondary credits.
