A DESCRIPTION OF JUNIOR COLLEGES.
RICHARDS, JAMES M.; AND OTHERS
FROM INFORMATION GIVEN TO THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF JUNIOR COLLEGES BY 581 COLLEGES, 36 VARIABLES WERE IDENTIFIED IN THE AREAS OF TYPE OF CONTROL, CURRICULAR EMPHASIS, FINANCIAL CHARACTERISTICS, AND MISCELLANEOUS CHARACTERISTICS. AFTER THE COMPUTATION OF INTERCORRELATIONS AMONG THESE VARIABLES, FACTORING OF THE RESULTANT CORRELATION MATRIX PRODUCED 12 FACTORS, SIX OF WHICH WERE ROTATED TO A FINAL SOLUTION--(1) CULTURAL AFFLUENCE, (2) TECHNOLOGICAL SPECIALIZATION, (3) SIZE, (4) AGE, (5) TRANSFER EMPHASIS, AND (6) BUSINESS ORIENTATION. LACK OF CONGRUENCE OF THESE FACTORS WITH THOSE DEVELOPED IN AN EARLIER STUDY OF 4-YEAR COLLEGES INDICATES THAT DIFFERENCES DO EXIST BETWEEN THE TWO TYPES OF INSTITUTIONS. USE OF THESE FACTORS ENABLES THE ASSESSMENT OF JUNIOR COLLEGE ENVIRONMENTS IN TERMS OF THEIR EFFECTS ON STUDENT ACCOMPLISHMENT AND GROWTH. DESCRIPTIONS OF THE FACTORS AND SCORES OF EACH COLLEGE IN THE STUDY ARE INCLUDED. (WO)
