THE COLLECTION AND UTILIZATION OF STUDENT BIOGRAPHICAL DATA BY JUNIOR COLLEGES.
ROUECHE, JOHN E.
STUDIES RECEIVED BY THE CLEARINGHOUSE DEALING WITH STUDENT CHARACTERISTICS INCLUDE RESEARCH BASED ON STUDENT QUESTIONNAIRES, ON STUDENT RECORDS, AND ON REVIEWS OF LITERATURE. DATA ARE REPORTED BOTH GRAPHICALLY AND IN TABULAR FORM, ACCOMPANIED IN MOST CASES BY NARRATIVE COMMENT. GREATER FREQUENCY IS NOTED IN UTILIZATION OF TOTAL STUDENT POPULATIONS THAN OF SAMPLES OF THE STUDENT BODY, AND BASIC SOCIOECONOMIC DATA ARE INCLUDED IN ALMOST ALL STUDIES. TWO OF THE STUDIES UTILIZED ATTITUDINAL SCALES AND THIS RESEARCH COULD HAVE STRONG IMPLICATIONS FOR PROGRAM MODIFICATIONS AT THE RESPECTIVE COLLEGES. THE STUDIES DO NOT, HOWEVER, INCLUDE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SPECIFIC PLANNING. FOR THE MOST PART, INSTITUTIONAL STUDY OF STUDENTS' BIOGRAPHICAL CHARACTERISTICS APPEARS TO HAVE AS ITS OVERRIDING PURPOSE THE COMPILATION OF DATA THAT MIGHT BE OF USE TO OTHER GROUPS WITHIN AND WITHOUT THE JUNIOR COLLEGE. (A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF STUDIES SURVEYED IS APPENDED.) THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "JUNIOR COLLEGE RESEARCH REVIEW," VOLUME 1, NUMBER 2, MARCH 1967. (AL)
