CEPS Wave 1 Baseline Fieldwork Accomplished

By successfully administering fieldwork in the last school in Liaoning Province on July 15th, China Education Panel Survey (CEPS) accomplished its baseline survey in 2013-2014 academic year.

CEPS documents and explains the educational processes by which students progress through secondary educational stages, selecting school-based, nationally representative sample of 19,487 students in 438 classrooms, 112 schools, 28 districts/counties across 20 provinces in China. CEPS administers 5 different questionnaires to students, their parents, teachers and principals, providing evidence-based data for academic research and policy decision.

China Education Panel Survey was designed by National Survey Research Center at Renmin University of China, cooperating with 19 local universities and institutions of China Social Survey Network(CSSN) system. NSRC and CSSN Co-PIs will continue their cooperation on CEPS in the coming years’ follow-up survey.

Baseline survey data is now being cleaned and analyzed. The annual report on baseline data will be released in November with more research discoveries published. The fall cohort students will be followed up in October.
