Abstract: The Fast Response Survey System (FRSS) and the Postsecondary Education Quick Information System (PEQIS) collect issue-oriented data quickly and with minimum response burden outside of National Center of Education Statistics' (NCES') large recurring surveys. Both systems were designed to collect and report data on key education issues at the elementary and secondary levels, and to meet the data needs of Department of Education analysts, planners, and decision-makers when information cannot be collected quickly through NCES' large recurring surveys. The purpose of the forthcoming two complementary FRSS and PEQIS surveys is to collect data about dual credit and dual enrollment programs offered to high school students. The FRSS 104 survey will provide nationally representative data on prevalence and enrollment of dual credit and exam-based courses in public high schools, while the PEQIS 18 will provide nationally representative data on the prevalence of college course-taking by high school students both within and outside of dual enrollment programs offered by postsecondary institutions. This is the second iteration of both surveys, previously conducted in school year 2002-03. This request is for clearance of the FRSS 104 and PEQIS 18 questionnaires and full scale data collection.
