As part of the 2012 NSSE administration, a set of experimental items asked first-year and senior students at selected institutions about skills and experiences that matched questions on the SNAAP questionnaire.
For the purposes of this study, only data from those institutions that participated in both the 2011 SNAAP administration and the additional item set on the 2012 NSSE administration were used.
This question is on the core survey for both NSSE and SNAAP. In contrast, the next two sets were developed for SNAAP and are on the SNAAP core survey, but were added to NSSE as additional questions appearing at the end of the core NSSE survey.
Using SNAAP data from the previous fall also guaranteed that no NSSE respondents would be eligible for participation in SNAAP after their graduation, which would violate the independent samples assumption of the statistical analyses.
surveyed 7,093 theatre graduates between 2011 and 2013, 10 percent of respondents said they left the field because of debt; 26.9 percent left because of higher pay in other fields.
