The College and Beyond II (CBII) Course Content Study contains course-level information about the curricular content of courses taken by students in the CBII Administrative Data course file. This information includes the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code associated with each subject, a College Course Map (CCM) code derived from the course's catalog title and subject code, and - at four postsecondary systems - the course description associated with each course. The Course Content Study can be linked with student-level course data using the ID_COURSE and COURSE_CATALOG_TITLE variables.
