EVALUATION OF ABLE HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS PROGRAM, COLLEGE OF SAN MATEO, SUMMER 1963.
San Mateo Coll., CA.
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF AN EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM FOR ACADEMICALLY ABLE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE COLLEGE DURING THE SUMMER SESSION BETWEEN THEIR JUNIOR AND SENIOR YEARS. A QUESTIONNAIRE GIVEN TO 40 STUDENTS SHOWED A VERY FAVORABLE REACTION TO THE PROGRAM. STUDENTS FOUND IT BENEFICIAL IN ORIENTATION TO COLLEGE, IN GAINING TIME BY TAKING COLLEGE COURSES EARLY, AND IN INCREASING RESPONSIBILITY AND CHALLENGE. THE FACULTY RESPONDED FAVORABLY TO A QUESTIONNAIRE AND INDICATED THAT THESE ABLE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS COMPETED EFFECTIVELY IN COLLEGE FRESHMAN CLASSES, WITH 95 PERCENT RECEIVING GRADES OF "C" OR BETTER. BOTH STUDENTS AND FACULTY AGREED THAT THE PROGRAM SHOULD BE CONTINUED AND EXPANDED. SAMPLE QUESTIONNAIRES WERE INCLUDED. (DE)
