THE HAMLINE UNIVERSITY CLASS PLAN FOR ST. PAUL DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAM STUDENTS, A REPORT OF A THREE-YEAR EXPERIMENT IN COLLEGE CLASSES FOR TALENTED HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCES.
RUNQUIST, OLAF
AN ACCELERATED PROGRAM FOR SUPERIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WAS DESCRIBED. THE EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM WAS OFFERED TO STUDENTS WHO HAD COMPLETED 3 YEARS IN THE ST. PAUL DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAM. THEY WERE ENROLLED IN REGULAR SCIENCE OR MATH COURSES AT HAMLINE UNIVERSITY WHILE STILL COMPLETING THEIR FINAL YEAR AT THEIR RESPECTIVE SCHOOLS. THE PURPOSES OF THE EXPERIMENT WERE TO DETERMINE IF SELECTED HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS COULD COMPLETE AND RECEIVE CREDIT FOR SUCH A COLLEGE COURSE WHILE MAINTAINING OTHER HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES SATISFACTORILY, TO DETERMINE IF SUCH A PROGRAM WOULD BE ADVANTAGEOUS TO THE STUDENTS IN THEIR COLLEGE WORK, AND TO DETERMINE THE EFFECT OF THE PLAN ON OTHER HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS NOT INVOLVED. THE MAJORITY OF THE STUDENTS COMPLETED THEIR COURSES SUCCESSFULLY. SIGNIFICANT DECISIONS AFFECTING THEIR FUTURE EDUCATIONAL PLANS RESULTED. THE PROGRAM APPARENTLY HAD NO EFFECT ON NONPARTICIPATING HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.
