GUIDED STUDIES MEASUREMENT AND EVALUATION REPORT FOR FIRST SEMESTER, 1966-67.
Daytona Beach Junior Coll., FL.
DESIGNED FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE DEFICIENT IN ACADEMIC SKILLS AT THE TIME OF ADMISSION, THE GUIDED STUDIES PROGRAM AT DAYTONA BEACH JUNIOR COLLEGE IS INTENDED TO HELP SUCH STUDENTS TOWARD ULTIMATE ENROLLMENT IN THEIR DESIRED PROGRAMS OR TOWARD DISCOVERY OF MORE APPROPRIATE GOALS. THE PROGRAM INCLUDES ENGLISH, READING, SOCIAL SCIENCE, AND MATHEMATICS. SELECTED ON THE BASIS OF PREVIOUS GRADES, COUNSELOR RECOMMENDATIONS, OR TEST SCORES AT ENTRANCE, STUDENTS MAY PROGRESS AT THEIR OWN RATES TOWARD MEETING PREREQUISITES FOR ENROLLMENT IN REGULAR COLLEGE LEVEL CLASSES. ANALYSIS OF TEST SCORES OF STUDENTS IN THE PROGRAM SHOWED A WIDE RANGE OF ABILITY WITH PRONOUNCED NEGATIVE SKEWNESS. IN THE SCHOOL AND COLLEGE ABILITY TESTS, THE MEAN OF THE GROUP WAS SIGNIFICANTLY BELOW NATIONAL NORMS, ALTHOUGH THERE WAS CONSIDERABLE OVERLAPPING BETWEEN THE STUDY AND THE NORM GROUPS. SIMILAR RESULTS WERE OBSERVED IN THE WRITING SAMPLE OF THE SEQUENTIAL TESTS OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRESS. BRIEF DESCRIPTIONS OF THE COURSES AND TABLES OF TEST SCORES, WITH DETAILED STATISTICAL ANALYSIS, ARE INCLUDED. (WO)
