FROM JUNIOR TO SENIOR COLLEGE--A NATIONAL STUDY OF THE TRANSFER STUDENT.
KNOELL, DOROTHY M.; MEDSKER, LELAND L.
IN THIS NATIONAL STUDY OF THE PREDICTION OF SUCCESS OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE TRANSFER STUDENT, THE AUTHORS FOUND THAT HIS SUCCESS DEPENDED ON THE INTERACTION OF MANY VARIABLES, SUCH AS HIS OWN ATTRIBUTES AND THOSE OF THE SENIOR INSTITUTION, ITS ACADEMIC STANDARDS AND GENERAL CLIMATE, AND THE ALTERNATIVES OFFERED THE STUDENT. THESE FINDINGS SUGGEST THAT CERTAIN ACTIONS COULD BE TAKEN NOW, HOWEVER, ON THE ASSESSMENT OF INDIVIDUAL CHARACTERISTICS, ON DETERMINING ATTRIBUTES OF THE 4-YEAR INSTITUTION, ON COUNSELING AND PLACEMENT OF STUDENTS, AND ON ARTICULATION AMONG BOTH JUNIOR AND SENIOR COLLEGES. SUCH IMMEDIATE ACTIONS WOULD HELP TO ACCOMMODATE SOME OF THE CONTINUING INCREASE IN STUDENT TRANSFERS EVEN WHILE OTHER AREAS FOR RESEARCH (WHICH WOULD EMERGE AS THE EXPECTED NEW PRACTICES EVOLVE), ARE BEING PURSUED. THE TECHNICAL REPORT OF THE ORIGINAL STUDY IS AVAILABLE AS ED 003 047 AND A RELATED REPORT AS ED 003 327. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FOR $2.50 FROM AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EDUCATION, 1785 MASSACHUSETTS AVENUE, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036. (HH)
