SOME CONCEPTS HELD BY LOS ANGELES CITY COLLEGE ENTRANTS ON PROBATION BECAUSE OF LOW SCAT SCORES.
STEIN, RUTH S.
A QUESTIONNAIRE ADMINISTERED TO 236 STUDENTS ADMITTED TO LOS ANGELES CITY COLLEGE ON PROBATION BECAUSE OF LOW TEST SCORES WAS DESIGNED TO STUDY THE ATTITUDES OF SUCH STUDENTS TOWARD ACADEMIC SKILLS AND ABILITIES, ACTIVITIES AND TIME ALLOTMENT, AND ATTITUDE AND ASPIRATION LEVEL. THREE DIMENSIONS WERE INCLUDED--(1) THE STUDENT'S SELF-PERCEPTION, (2) HIS PERCEPTION OF THE IDEAL STUDENT, AND (3) HIS PERCEPTION OF THE COLLEGE'S EXPECTATION. THESE ENTERING PROBATIONERS VIEWED THE COLLEGE FROM A VOCATIONAL ORIENTATION AND DID NOT SEE A NEED FOR HIGHLY DEVELOPED ACADEMIC SKILLS AND INTERESTS, ALTHOUGH THEY DID EXPRESS BELIEF THAT THE IDEAL STUDENT HAS SUCH QUALITIES. THEY EXPRESSED (1) FAITH IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGE TO PROVIDE WHAT THE ECONOMY AND SOCIAL MILIEU HAD NOT OFFERED THEM, (2) BELIEF IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGE AS AN AID TO A MORE PRODUCTIVE ECONOMIC LIFE, (3) A FAIRLY HIGH SELF-ESTEEM AS STUDENTS, (4) AN EXPRESSED WILLINGNESS TO SUBJECT THEMSELVES TO THE DISCIPLINE OF REGULAR STUDY, AND (5) CONFIDENCE THAT THEIR VALUES AND NEEDS WERE SIMILAR TO THOSE OF THE COLLEGE AND THE IDEAL STUDENT. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT THESE FINDINGS INDICATED A NEED FOR EFFECTIVE COUNSELING, WITH CAREFUL PLANNING AND ASSIGNMENT OF COURSES AIMED AT EDUCATIONAL AND SELF-EVALUATIVE PROGRESS. (WO)
