THE AVERAGE ABILITY STUDENT IN CALIFORNIA'S UNIVERSITY BRANCHES AND STATE COLLEGES.
HALL, LINCOLN
FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS STUDY, "AVERAGE" STUDENTS WERE DEFINED AS THOSE WHOSE COLLEGE APTITUDE TEST PERCENTILE RANKINGS WERE BETWEEN 40 AND 60 AND WHOSE INTELLIGENCE QUOTIENTS WERE BETWEEN 90 AND 110. OF THE ENTRANTS AT THE COLLEGE ON THE SEQUOIAS BETWEEN 1953 AND 1962, STUDENTS OF AVERAGE ABILITY HAD THE SAME OPPORTUNITY AS THE ABOVE AVERAGE STUDENTS TO EARN THE BACHELOR'S DEGREE IN THE STATE COLLEGES AND THE UNIVERSITY. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE COLLEGE WAS FULFILLING ONE OF THE MISSIONS PERCEIVED FOR THE JUNIOR COLLEGE IN CALIFORNIA'S MASTER PLAN FOR HIGHER EDUCATION--PROVIDING A PROVING GROUND FOR POTENTIAL 4-YEAR COLLEGE STUDENTS. THIS SUCCESS IS EVIDENCED BY THE FACT THAT FEWER THAN ONE-THIRD OF ALL STUDENTS AT THE COLLEGE OF THE SEQUOIAS SUCCEEDED IN COMPLETING ASSOCIATE IN ARTS DEGREE REQUIREMENTS OR IN TRANSFERRING TO A SENIOR INSTITUTION, BUT THAT MOST OF THOSE WHO DID TRANSFER (INCLUDING THE MAJORITY OF THOSE WHO WITHDREW BEFORE RECEIVING THE BACHELOR'S DEGREE) WERE CAPABLE OF AT LEAST ADEQUATE PERFORMANCE AT THE 4-YEAR INSTITUTIONS.
