Abstract

This project has been an outgrowth of the recently completed report, Change in Field of Study from Undergraduate to Graduate School: Creation of a GRE Data Base for Studying Talent Flow by Jerilee Grandy and Nancy Robertson. Both examinee-level and matrix data files created and analyzed under the original project were rearranged to make them more accessible to researchers. These multiyear files (covering testing years 1977-78 through 1986-87) have also been documented so that they can be easily located and analyzed. Extension of the data base through 1991-92 is under way and will be completed in 1993.
