MOCK, KATHLEEN; AND OTHERS
A CONCERN OVER THE LOSS OF POTENTIALLY CAPABLE STUDENTS LED RESEARCH PERSONNEL ON THE DAVIS, LOS ANGELES, AND SANTA BARBARA CAMPUSES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA TO JOIN FORCES IN A STUDY TO IDENTIFY WAYS FOR ACCOMMODATING THE VARIOUS TYPES OF STUDENTS ADMITTED TO THE THREE SCHOOLS. A 2-YEAR PROJECT WAS PLANNED. THIS INTERIM REPORT COVERED A 1-YEAR ASSESSMENT OF SAMPLES FROM THE THREE COLLEGES. THE MAJOR DATA WERE DRAWN FROM AN EXTENSIVE QUESTIONNAIRE, INCLUDING INFORMATION ABOUT THE STUDENTS' BACKGROUND CHARACTERISTICS, ASPIRATIONS, AND ATTITUDES. APTITUDE DATA AND SCORES ON A PERSONALITY INVENTORY WERE ALSO INCLUDED IN THE FIRST-YEAR ANALYSIS. BASED ON THESE VARIOUS DATA, THE REPORT DESCRIBED THE FRESHMAN STUDENT BODIES ON EACH CAMPUS AND DIFFERENTIATED THEM WITHIN AND AMONG THE CAMPUSES. THE SAMPLE GROUPS USED IN THE STUDY REPRESENTED 74 PERCENT OF THE DAVIS FRESHMEN, 75 PERCENT AT SANTA BARBARA, AND 48 PERCENT AT LOS ANGELES. NO ATTEMPT WAS MADE IN THE INTERIM PERIOD OF STUDY TO ESTABLISH IMPLICATIONS OR CONCLUSIONS. (JH)
