Title of Collection: 2016–17 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:16/17) Field Test Data Collection. OMB Control Number: 1850–0729. Type of Review: A reinstatement of a previously approved information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals and Households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 4,417. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 977. Abstract: This request is for the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) to conduct a field test of the 2016/17 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:16/17). The B&B studies of the education, work, financial, and personal experiences of individuals who have completed a bachelor’s degree at a given point in time are a series of longitudinal studies. Every 8 years, students are identified as bachelor’s degree recipients through the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS). B&B:16/17 is the first follow-up of a panel of baccalaureate degree recipients identified in the 2015– 16 NPSAS, and part of the fourth cohort (B&B:16) of the B&B series. The primary purposes of the B&B studies are to describe the post-baccalaureate paths of new college graduates, with a focus on their experiences in the labor market and post-baccalaureate education, and their education-related debt. B&B also focuses on the continuing education paths of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduates, as well as the experiences of those who have begun careers in education of students through the 12th grade. Since graduating from college in 2014–15 for the field test, and 2015–16 for the full-scale study, members of this B&B:16 cohort will begin moving into and out of the workforce, enrolling in additional undergraduate and graduate education, forming families, and repaying undergraduate educationrelated debt. Documenting these choices and pathways, along with individual, institutional, and employment characteristics that may be related to those choices, provides critical information on the costs and benefits of a bachelor’s degree in today’s workforce. B&B studies include both traditional-age and non-traditional-age college graduates, whose education options and choices often diverge considerably, and PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 allow study of the paths taken by these different graduates. The results of this field test will inform the B&B:16/17 fullscale data collection. Dated: March 31, 2016.
