FACTORS AFFECTING PERFORMANCE OF TRANSFER STUDENTS FROM 2- TO 4-YEAR COLLEGES--WITH IMPLICATIONS FOR COORDINATION AND ARTICULATION.
KNOELL, DOROTHY M.; MEDSKER, LELAND L.
AN INTENSIVE STUDY WAS MADE OF THE FACTORS AFFECTING PERSISTENCE AND ACADEMIC ACCOMPLISHMENT OF STUDENTS TRANSFERRING FROM 2-YEAR (JUNIOR COLLEGE) TO 4-YEAR COLLEGES. THE OBJECTIVE WAS TO OBTAIN NORMATIVE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THESE STUDENTS. THE MAJOR STUDY GROUP WAS COMPOSED OF APPROXIMATELY 9,000 JUNIOR COLLEGE STUDENTS WHO TRANSFERRED TO A SAMPLE OF 41 4-YEAR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES IN 10 STATES. THE TWO MAJOR SOURCES OF STUDENT DATA WERE QUESTIONNAIRES AND TRANSCRIPTS OF COLLEGE COURSEWORK. THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE RESULTS OF THE STUDY FOR COUNSELING WERE REPEATEDLY EMPHASIZED. THE STUDY REVEALED THAT STUDENTS HAVE DIFFICULTY IN MAKING THE CHOICE OF EDUCATIONAL AND VOCATIONAL GOALS. (AW)
