RESEARCH STUDIES OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE DROPOUT.
ROUECHE, JOHN E.
A REVIEW OF 16 INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH REPORTS IN THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE INFORMATION INDICATES THE TYPE OF EFFORTS BEING MADE BY JUNIOR COLLEGES TO REDUCE THEIR NUMBERS OF DROPOUTS. QUESTIONNAIRE STUDIES, ANALYSIS OF STUDENT CHARACTERISTICS, AND ADJUSTMENT OF INSTITUTIONAL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES ARE TYPICAL PRACTICES. INSTITUTIONAL REPORTS INDICATE THAT ALTHOUGH THERE IS LITTLE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ATTRITION AND ABILITY AS SHOWN BY GRADE RECORDS OR COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAMINATIONS, A RELATIONSHIP APPEARS TO EXIST BETWEEN DROPOUT RATES AND CERTAIN NONINTELLECTIVE FACTORS. THE AUTHOR RECOMMENDS FURTHER RESEARCH INTO SUCH FACTORS, THE REASONS FOR DROPOUTS, AND THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF STUDENTS WHO LEAVE JUNIOR COLLEGES BEFORE COMPLETION OF THEIR PROGRAMS. (WO)
