INTERACTION BETWEEN THE STUDENT AND COLLEGE ENVIRONMENT.
CREAGER, JOHN A.
A THEORETICAL SCHEME WAS DISCUSSED FOR MATCHING STUDENTS TO COLLEGES THROUGH THE USE OF A DIRECTORY WHICH COULD CONTAIN PROFILES OF STUDENT CHARACTERISTICS AND OF COLLEGE ENVIRONMENTAL CHARACTERISTICS. EACH PROFILE WOULD CARRY A DESIGNATED INDEX NUMBER FACTORED FROM THE INPUT OF GIVEN CHARACTERISTIC VARIABLES. WHEN USED BY THE STUDENT AND HIS COUNSELOR, A CORRELATION OF THE INDEX NUMBER OF THE PROFILE MOST LIKE A PROFILE OF THE STUDENT AND THE INDEX NUMBER OF A PARTICULAR COLLEGE WOULD YIELD PREDICTIVE OUTPUT INFORMATION RELEVANT TO ACHIEVEMENT OF SUCH SPECIFIC GOALS, AS ACQUISITION OF A PARTICULAR DEGREE, STIMULATING ACADEMIC ATMOSPHERE, AND FINANCIAL AND GEOGRAPHIC LIMITATIONS. THE COLLEGE ADMISSIONS OFFICER COULD USE THE DIRECTORY TO ASSIST IN THE SELECTION OF THOSE STUDENTS WHO MIGHT BEST AID IN THE MAINTENANCE OR THE ACQUISITION OF PRECONCEIVED STANDARDS. THE HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELOR AND THE ADMISSIONS OFFICER WOULD NOT USE THE DIRECTORY TO MAKE FINALIZED, AUTOMATED PERSONNEL DECISIONS, BUT AS A TOOL TO BE USED ALONG WITH OTHER INFORMATION. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED TO THE AMERICAN PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE ASSOCIATION CONVENTION (DALLAS, MARCH, 1967) AS PART OF THE SYMPOSIUM, "IMPLICATIONS OF A PROGRAM OF RESEARCH ON STUDENT DEVELOPMENT IN HIGHER EDUCATION."
