EVALUATING TRANSFER APPLICATIONS.
HILLS, JOHN R.
STUDIES OF ACHIEVEMENT OF TRANSFER STUDENTS HAVE SHOWN THAT THEY (1) EXPERIENCE AN APPRECIABLE DROP IN GRADES IN THEIR FIRST SEMESTER AFTER TRANSFER, (2) SUBSEQUENTLY RECOVER PART OR ALL OF THIS LOSS, (3) EARN LOWER TOTAL GRADE POINT AVERAGES THAN DO NATIVE STUDENTS, (4) EXPERIENCE GREATEST DIFFICULTY IN MATHEMATICALLY ORIENTED PROGRAMS AND AT MAJOR STATE UNIVERSITIES, (5) ARE LESS LIKELY THAN NATIVES TO GRADUATE, AND (6) TAKE LONGER TO GRADUATE THAN DO NATIVES. INSTITUTIONS ACCEPTING TRANSFER STUDENTS SHOULD (1) ANALYZE THEIR PAST EXPERIENCES WITH TRANSFER STUDENTS AS A BASIS FOR POLICY DETERMINATION, (2) REQUIRE A HIGHER PRETRANSFER GRADE POINT AVERAGE THAN THAT SET FOR PROBATION FOR NATIVE STUDENTS, (3) ACCEPT APPRECIABLY MORE TRANSFER STUDENTS THAN THEY EXPECT TO GRADUATE, (4) CONSIDER THE CONVERSION OF PRETRANSFER GRADES TO A COMMON BASE, THUS REDUCING THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENCES IN GRADING PRACTICES AT VARIOUS INSTITUTIONS, AND (5) INVESTIGATE THE USE OF ADDITIONAL MEASURES TO INCREASE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF PREDICTION OF TRANSFER STUDENT SUCCESS.
