TRANSFER SHOCK--THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE TRANSFER.
HILLS, JOHN R.
IN REVIEWING FINDINGS OF RESEARCH CONDUCTED FROM 1928 THROUGH 1964 RELATIVE TO THE SUCCESS OF JUNIOR COLLEGE TRANSFER STUDENTS, THE AUTHOR CONCLUDES THAT TRANSFER STUDENTS SHOULD EXPECT TO SUFFER AN APPRECIABLE DROP IN GRADES IN THE FIRST SEMESTER AFTER TRANSFER, THAT THEIR GRADES TEND TO IMPROVE IN DIRECT RELATION TO THEIR LENGTH OF SCHOOLING, AND THAT NATIVE STUDENTS AS A GROUP PERFORM BETTER THAN DO TRANSFER STUDENTS. HE CONCLUDES THAT THE STUDENT WHO PLANS TO EARN A DEGREE AT THE BACHELOR'S LEVEL SHOULD BE WARNED OF THE PROBABILITY THAT HE WILL SUFFER A POTENTIALLY SEVERE TRANSFER SHOCK, THAT HE WILL ENCOUNTER GREATER DIFFICULTY THAN THE NATIVE STUDENT, AND THAT HE WILL BE LESS LIKELY TO GRADUATE IN THE NORMAL TIME. AS EVIDENCE FOR HIS CONCLUSIONS, THE AUTHOR CITES 24 STUDIES AND REPORTS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "THE JOURNAL OF EXPERIMENTAL EDUCATION," VOLUME 33, NUMBER 3, SPRING 1965. (WO)
