The CIRP Surveys are a group of linked surveys developed by the Higher Education Research Group. The CIRP Freshman Survey is administered annually to all incoming Beloit First Years during New Student Days and the CIRP Senior Survey is administered every three years to Beloit seniors during their second semester, allowing the college to track longitudinal data.
The surveys cover a wide range of student characteristics: parental income and education, ethnicity, and other demographic items; financial aid; academic achievement, engagement, and satisfaction; educational and career plans; and values, attitudes, beliefs, and self-concept.
