A PROFILE OF CHICAGO CITY COLLEGE 1965 GRADUATES, FOLLOW-UP NUMBER 2.
STORER, MARJORIE; AND OTHERS
TO DETERMINE WHETHER GRADUATES HAD BEGUN TO REALIZE THEIR ASPIRATIONS AND TO ASSESS THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF CHICAGO CITY COLLEGE (CCC) TO THEIR PRESENT STATUS, DATA FROM A 55 PERCENT RESPONSE TO A QUESTIONNAIRE 15 MONTHS AFTER GRADUATION WERE COMPARED WITH A STUDY CONDUCTED IMMEDIATELY AFTER GRADUATION. THE INVENTORY IDENTIFIES THOSE GRADUATES PRESENTLY ATTENDING A SENIOR INSTITUTION AND RELATES THEIR PRESENT CURRICULUM CHOICES TO THEIR CCC CHOICES. IT ALSO IDENTIFIES THOSE GRADUATES WHO ARE NOT ATTENDING ANY SENIOR INSTITUTION AND RELATES THE RELATIVE CONTRIBUTION OF THEIR CCC CURRICULUM CHOICES TO THEIR PRESENT JOBS. DATA INDICATE A HIGH CORRELATION BETWEEN CCC CURRICULUM CHOICES AND CHOICES BY GRADUATES IN SENIOR INSTITUTIONS. HOWEVER, THE LARGE PERCENTAGE OF NEGATIVE RESPONSES TO A QUESTION CONCERNING CURRICULUM CHOICE IN RELATION TO SPECIFIC JOB PREPARATION INDICATES A NEED FOR A MORE CRITICAL LOOK AT THE CCC PROGRAM. FOR ARTICULATION PURPOSES, IT IS NOTED THAT 85 PERCENT OF THE 1965 TRANSFER STUDENTS ARE ENROLLED IN 10 INSTITUTIONS. EIGHTY-TWO PERCENT OF THE GRADUATES RESPONDING (565 OF 685) HAVE CONTINUED THEIR EDUCATION ON SOME LEVEL. VOLUNTARY EXPRESSIONS OF OPINION FROM THE GRADUATES ARE APPENDED. (AL)
