SUMMARY REPORT ON PERFORMANCE OF HIGH-SCHOOL HONORS STUDENTS, SPRING, 1963 - SUMMER, 1967.
STEIN, RUTH S.
A STUDY WAS MADE OF THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF HIGH SCHOOL HONOR STUDENTS WHO WERE ALLOWED TO ENROLL IN LOS ANGELES CITY COLLEGE TO TAKE STANDARD TRANSFERABLE COURSES OF COLLEGE LEVEL PRIOR TO HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION. PERFORMANCE DATA AND GRADE POINT AVERAGES WERE GROUPED FOR EACH HIGH SCHOOL AND FOR EACH DEPARTMENT OR SUBJECT AREA. ON THE SCHOOL AND COLLEGE ABILITY TESTS (SCAT), THE RANGE OF VERBAL SCORES WAS FAR WIDER THAN THE RANGE IN QUANTITATIVE SCORES, SINCE 20 PERCENT OF THE STUDENTS CAME FROM BILINGUAL HOMES. THE CORRELATION BETWEEN SCAT SCORES AND COURSE GRADES WAS SIMILAR TO THAT FOUND IN THE GENERAL STUDENT BODY. SINCE MOST OF THE STUDENTS IN THIS PROGRAM DID VERY WELL, THE WRITER CONCLUDES THAT THE PROGRAM IS A SUCCESSFUL DEVICE FOR PROVIDING HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS THE OPPORTUNITY FOR ADVANCED STANDING. TABLES SUMMARIZE ENROLLMENT AND PERFORMANCE DATA BY SESSION, BY SUBJECT, AND BY HIGH SCHOOL, AND SHOW THE SCAT RAW SCORES IN RELATION TO GRADES EARNED. (HH)
