members. The study focuses on achievement growth, and its correlates,
in the high school years; the family and school social context of
secondary education; and transitions from high school to postsecondary
education and/or the labor market. Major issues for the postsecondary
years include postsecondary educational access and choice, and
persistence and baccalaureate and sub-baccalaureate attainment, as well
as the work experiences of the non-college-bound, and other markers of
adult status, such as family formation and civic participation. Data
collections took place in 2002, 2004, 2006 (two years out of high
school), and now a final data collection will take place in 2012, when
most sample members are around 26 years of age. This submission
requests OMB's approval for batch tracing for the third follow-up 2011
field test and 2012 full scale respondents.
