  1. Supplemental Material for "Institutional and Ethnic Variations in Postgraduate Enrollment and Completion"

    Tienda, Marta; Zhao, Linda
    Using the B&B:93/03 longitudinal cohort survey, we investigate (1) whether and how much variations in the timing of enrollment, the type of undergraduate institution attended, and type of graduate program pursued contribute to observed racial and ethnic differentials in post-baccalaureate enrollment, and (2) whether the observed enrollment differentials carry over to degree attainment. Dynamic event history methods that account both for the timing of matriculation and the hazard of enrolling reveal that compared to whites underrepresented minorities enroll earlier and also are more likely to enroll in doctoral and advanced professional degree programs relative to nonenrollment. Our results reveal sizable...

  2. Supplemental Material for "Assessing the College Financial Aid Work Penalty"

    Darolia, Rajeev
    Working has become commonplace among college students in the United States; however, this activity can have unexpected financial consequences. Federal formulas implicitly tax the amount of financial aid some students are eligible to receive by as much as 50 cents for each marginal dollar of income. In this paper I document this college financial aid “work penalty” and discuss the related incentives for some college students to reduce their income. Using data from a national sample of financially independent college students in the United States, I do not find evidence to suggest that students meaningfully reduce earnings because of implicit...

  3. Supplemental Material for "Surviving and Thriving: The Adaptive Responses of U.S. Four-Year Colleges and Universities during the Great Recession"

    Brint, Steven; Yoshikawa, Sarah R. K.; Rotondi, Matthew B.; Viggiano, Tiffany; Maldonado, John
    Press reports and industry statistics both give incomplete pictures of the outcomes of the Great Recession for U.S. four-year colleges and universities. To address these gaps, we conducted a statistical analysis of all articles that appeared in Lexis-Nexis on a sample of more than 300 U.S. colleges and universities during the Recession years. We identify four clusters of institutional responses, which we label "consumer service," "market search," "growing and greening" and "the complete arsenal." Overviews of actions taken in each of these clusters provide qualitative texture and evidence of senior managers’ intentions. Our findings are broadly consistent with organizational theories...

  4. Supplemental Table for "Alternative Student-Based Revenue Streams for Higher Education Institutions: A Difference-in-Difference Analysis Using Guaranteed Tuition Policies"

    Delaney, Jennifer A.; Kearney, Tyler D.
    This study considered the impact of state-level guaranteed tuition programs on alternative student-based revenue streams. It used a quasi-experimental, difference-in-difference methodology with a panel dataset of public four-year institutions from 2000–2012. Illinois’ 2004 “Truth-in-Tuition” law was used as the policy of interest and the treatment condition. Following the introduction of Illinois’ guaranteed tuition law, required fees and out-of-state tuition increased significantly at institutions subject to the law, but not the number or percent of out-of-state students. These results were robust to specifications with alternative comparison groups and the inclusion of state-specific linear time trends.

  5. Supplemental Material for "Persistence Patterns in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)"

    Evans, Brent J.; Baker, Rachel B.; Dee, Thomas S.
    Using a unique dataset of 44 Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), this article examines critical patterns of enrollment, engagement, persistence, and completion among students in online higher education. By leveraging fixed-effects specifications based on over 2.1 million student observations across more than 2,900 lectures, we analyzed engagement, persistence, and completion rates at the student, lecture, and course levels. We found compelling and consistent temporal patterns: across all courses, participation declines rapidly in the first week but subsequently flattens out in later weeks of the course. However, this decay is not entirely uniform. We also found that several student and lecture-specific...
