NCES 2020522 Beginning Postsecondary Students Study 12/17 (BPS:12/17): Data File Documentation
This publication describes the methodology used in the 2012/17 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:12/17). BPS:12/17 is the second and final follow-up study of students who began postsecondary education in the 2011 – 12 academic year. These students were first interviewed as part of the 2011 – 12 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:12). In particular, this report details the methodology and outcomes of the BPS:12/17 sample design, student interview design, student interview data collection processes, administrative records matching, data file processing, and weighting procedures. The BPS study is unique in that it includes both traditional and nontraditional students, follows their paths through postsecondary education over the course of 6 years, and is not limited to enrollment at a single institution.

NCES 2019060 National Household Education Surveys Program of 2016: Supplementary Geocode Files for the Parent and Family Involvement in Education Survey, Early Childhood Program Participation Survey, and Adult Training and Education Survey
National Household Education Surveys Program of 2016: Supplementary Restricted-Use Geocode Data for the Parent and Family Involvement in Education, Early Childhood Program Participation, and Adult Training and Education Surveys are available through an NCES restricted-use data license. Variables are drawn from administrative and survey data from NCES and other federal agencies (primarily data from the Census Bureau) to expand the analytic utility of NHES:2016 data. The supplementary data include geographic identifiers down to the census block group and identifiers for a child’s assigned public school district. The files also include measures based on radii around a respondent’s home for access to different education programs and schools. While additional geographic characteristic information is provided, the data support estimates of national-level characteristics and not subnational geographies like states or specific localities. The additional geocode data can be used to produce nationally representative estimates or national-level subgroup analyses such as schooling experiences of students living in low-population density areas with high employment rates across the U.S. but not schooling experiences of students in a specific rural area.

This report compares these students’ demographic and enrollment characteristics, financial aid, and price of attendance with those of students whose family incomes were above the federal poverty level.

NCES 2019486 Trends in Undergraduate Nonfederal Grant and Scholarship Aid by Demographic and Enrollment Characteristics: Selected Years, 2003–04 to 2015–16
These tables present data from four administrations of the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (2003–04, 2007–08, 2011–12, and 2015–16) on nonfederal grant aid and scholarship aid awarded to undergraduate students. Nonfederal grant and scholarship aid is financial aid awarded by states, institutions, employers, and private organizations. Grants and scholarships, unlike loans, do not need to be repaid and are traditionally awarded on the basis of financial need, merit (e.g., academic or athletic), or a combination of need and merit. Estimates in these tables include the percentage of undergraduates who received nonfederal aid and the average amounts they received, by aid type (need- or merit-based), source (state, institution, or employer), and selected student and institutional characteristics.

WWC 20090001 Using Technology to Support Postsecondary Student Learning
Using Technology to Support Postsecondary Student Learning is a practice guide that focuses on promising uses of technologies associated with improving postsecondary student learning outcomes. The practice guide will help higher education instructors, instructional designers, and administrators support learning through the effective use of technology.

Compiled by a panel of national experts and practitioners, the practice guide offers five evidence-based recommendations:

* Use communication and collaboration tools to increase interaction among students and between students and instructors.
* Use varied, personalized, and readily available digital resources to design and deliver instructional content.
* Incorporate technology that models and fosters self-regulated learning strategies.
* Use technology to provide timely and targeted feedback on student performance.
* Use simulation technologies that help students engage in complex problem-solving.

Each recommendation includes research-based strategies and examples for implementing these recommendations in postsecondary settings. Examples include sample tools for increasing communication and collaboration; strategies for varying course formats and packaging course content; technologies to foster self-regulated learning or provide feedback to students; and implementation examples from studies that provide the evidence base for the recommendations.
